STEVE AISHMAN (b.1975, Michigan) – Love comes in many colors. So do love notes. Steve Aishman’s work displays a permanent state of romance where shopping lists convey as much love as a sonnet. People don’t send love letters anymore, but they send text acronyms like personal coded messages. DM Me CILU. In the series The Aishmans, Steve displays the latest of the 16 years worth of daily notes that he has written to his wife. Also on display are Aishman’s photographs of frozen moments of domesticity that are allegories for the passions we all find in the everyday existence we share with loved ones.
Aishman graduated from Princeton with an AB in Astrophysics in 1997 and received his MFA from the Museum School in 2001. He has received numerous awards for his work and most recently had a solo show at he prestigious JCCAC in Hong Kong.
