Icons of time and place.
Intense colour, intriguing texture,
careful superimposition.
These fuse in Aiken's into creativity.

Its a communicative space where
fascination with the simple things
in life dialogues with sensitivity to the
complexity of human experience.
A space networked by concepts;
familiar figures and objects revisited
and reworked, themes in variations,
poetic correspondences.
