Aaron Claringbold is an artist based between the south east and south west of the Australian continent. His art is an attempt at thinking and feeling a place in the world. It is driven by the desire for understanding and by navigating the contemporary conditions of distraction and techno-social tangential thinking. From his positionality as inheritor and beneficiary, he is invested in a critical cultural engagement with the realities of settler-colonial modernity in so-called Australia; and with its various global catchments and outlets. He is interested in entanglements of the now, in cycles and feedback loops, in mythologies of separation, in infrastructure as monument, in photography as show-and-tell, and in art as a tomb or altar.

Aaron often works collaboratively with Rebecca McCauley.
