Aaron Richmond is a Montreal-based artist whose practice explores the psychological and semiotic capacities of tectonic space. Using a broad range of material and conceptual parameters, his work seeks to address both the individual and the collective in their various capacities for working, making and building.
Aaron is the recipient of awards which include, most recently, the 2016 Robert Motherwell Fellowship and the 2015 Milton and Sally Avery Fellowship, both awarded through the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. He holds a Masters of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge, and a Master’s of Fine Arts from the Hoffberger School at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
As an AiR at McGill’s Faculty of Education, Aaron will combine his experience as an artist and educator, exploring how the act of drawing can function as a mode of thinking within the context of education. He intends to develop a multi-layered program in which the viabilities of artistic practice are made accessible to faculty, students, and their broader communities.
