Ice Cut (1932), 2010
Oil on linen
62 x 80 inches
 

Aho began the Ice Cut series nine years ago, making one painting a year of the dark void created by the act of sawing into the thick ice. The central abstract form in these compositions provides the structure for Aho's experimentation with paint texture, surface, and subtly nuanced color, giving these frozen scenes a sense of both austere beauty and vibrant life.
