Aaron Moth is the artistic alter ego of Mateusz Tomczyk, born 1991, polish photographer, collage and stage designer, fascinated by American photography of the 1960s and 1970s, nudity, eroticism and queer art.
Each of his collages is created on the original page, so that each work is exceptional and unique. In Moth's work you can find fragments of photographs from different years, but the artist himself admits that he values erotica and pornography the most in the 1960s and 1970s. This is due to its plasticity and its characteristic style, both in terms of the way it is photographed and the selection of the models, the latter heroes of his collage.
Aaron Moth is aware that his work may be controversial, especially in the country where he lives and works now. But as he admits, he has been a rebel since childhood, he likes risks and walks his own paths: Poland is not so open and tolerant country like most of Western Europe. Recently, it intensified in our reality that if you are "different", then better do not show it. Unfortunately, Poland is still a very conservative and Catholic country full of homophobia, xenophobia and racism.
Although in his work Aaron Moth uses mostly erotic and pornographic pictures, thanks to the technique of collage, he creates a new, more sensual quality that, he says, allows me to show my nature, what I am, what I dream, what I want and who I desire? I think that without these emotions and desires I would not be able to create satisfactory works.
