Aaron Eskridge

My name is Aaron Eskridge, and I am from El Paso, Tx. I am a student at the University of Texas at El Paso, working to earn my bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. I grew up here in my hometown for most of my life and became influenced by the Chicano lifestyle inherited from my family. I tend to spend a lot of my time with my family, who live in Juarez and San Antonio. The mixture of the different atmospheres, landscapes, and weather heavily influences my work and helps broaden my ideas which are mirrored in my career.

Conceptual Statement: “Within Reach” represents that wealth does not only lie within the stereotypical riches. This handpiece demonstrates wealth in having multiple assets, like homes, businesses, vehicles, and liquid assets, many of which are obtainable by anyone and everyone. The interchangeable rings are etched with different images of these assets on brass. The main nickel form represents the assets connecting towards a common idea within the community.
