Although Aaron Schuerr engages in lots of different media, including writing and acting, he is best known for his award-winning pastel works.
Schuerr mostly finds the inspiration for his works outdoors, which is where he also likes to do most of his painting. This led to an impressive series in which he meshes pastel landscapes and nature using photography.
After he finishes with painting, Schuerr positions his work in such a way that it seems like a part of nature. He then captures this scene and shares it with his Instagram followers.
“The heart of my work is in the outdoors, absorbing the pattern of light on the landscape,” – Schuerr says off his works. “Actors speak of ‘being in the moment’, immersing themselves so totally in the story that everything else falls away. The open-air is my stage, and in the best moments, I am lost in it. I have no desire to impress you with these paintings. Rather, I strive to share my experience with honesty and without fear.”
