Aaron W Lacey

described Lacey’s work in 2008 in those terms, “Aaron W. Lacey creates remarkable artworks with a mixed media process that incorporates moulding pastes, clothing and acrylic paint. While evoking consumer culture as in Pop Art and the untamed aesthetics of Abstract Expressionism, each piece has an individual character based upon the materials that he is working with. The petrified state of the fabrics appears nearly archaeological while its textures and folds create a visually dynamic force within the work. By varying his process Lacey is able to create a swath of fascinating effects, from bubbling metal to glistening flower petals”.


Lacey’s approach to art merges his passion for all that is beautiful and sensorial with science, the artist explains "My work is unique and rare because I have fused science, art and fashion," he states. "All my work has texture for the purpose of touch."


Lacey is a graduate of the former Canadian Forces School of Intelligence & Security (CFSIS), and in the absence of a formal artistic education he has certainly blazed an exceptional path. His work is in the collection of HRH Prince Harry and has been acquired by numerous advertising and production companies including such major companies as Bell Mobility and Labatt's Brewery. His work "Omega" has been accepted by the new Yankees Stadium Museum. Aaron W. Lacey lives and works in Beamsville, Canada.
