This exhibition is part of an ongoing project exploring Aronsohn’s family history over 150 years. In the work, the family represents ordinary individuals, often placed in extraordinary circumstances – secondary characters whose existence provides a focus for the viewer for events in the world which surrounds them.
The exhibition features three of Aronsohn’s approaches including lino prints, sculpture and etchings. The lino prints feature synagogues central to members of Aronsohn’s family, while the sculpture continues this theme with a model of an 18th century Polish wooden synagogue from the time of the Baal Shem Tov. David Aronsohn works in sculpture, drawing and print. He has studied fine art at Chelsea and the Slade School of art. His awards have included the Royal Academy British Institution Fund and the Duveen Travel Scholarship. He divides his time between making work for exhibition and teaching.
