Photograph or painting?

Mysterious figures, sometimes disturbing, sometimes messengers, or simply sensual and attractive.
Aaron Nagel’s painted figures all have something in common: verosimilitude.

Pierced by arrows, with halo’s on their heads, or holding hands in prayer, suspended in mid-air, or placed in plastic poses they seem ready to jump out of the canvas towards the spectator.

It is such a genuine sensation that it paradoxically leads us to a dream state.
