You may remember Neighbor Aaron Zube from the terrific show he had at the Inclusions Gallery on Cortland this time last year. Well, Neighbor Aaron reached out to Bernalwood this week to share a remarkable proposal:
I’m working on a series of portrait paintings of Bernal Heights residents and was wondering if any of your readers would be interested in volunteering to have their portrait painted. This is just for my own practice (and to possibly show sometime in the future) & would give me a chance to meet some of my neighbors — no obligation to buy the painting. It would only require a few hours of their time. My website has my contact information if anyone is interested.
“If anyone is interested…” That’s funny! More like: Please take a number!

The art on Aaron’s site is amazing. Reminds of verakeet tongpaiboon mixed with ouf of focus hyperrealism.
Wonderful work! I hope he takes me up on my offer to paint my kid. That’d be a great business idea for this hood: painting toddlers.
I’m afraid these depictions make the subjects look somewhat, um, other-worldly.
