Artist Profile: Aja Trier & Stories From A Field


Stories of Wildflowers

Today we introduce to you a new artist for Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, Aja Trier. Recently added to our web only assortment (meaning you won’t find within the pages of our catalog), are two stretched canvas style prints by this emerging young artist. Pictured here to the left is our Stories From A Field Act 61 print. “Stories from a Field, Act 61,” is part of a series by Aja Trier, dedicated to bright floral and sometimes extremely close up, outdoor flower art. While we can’t speculate as to why these daisies and wild flowers are represented as ‘Act 61,’ we can note the amazing field of flowers that does seem waiting to share a story with the viewer.

Arranged among tall green grasses, the bright red, orange, yellow, pink and purple flowers contrast with gorgeous shades of green. While simplistic in nature at first glance, the experienced eye will note the level of detail achieved. The other stretched canvas print available, is another print within Aja’s Trier’s Stories Form A Field series.

Stories of Tulips

The Stories From A Field Act 22 shown here to the left, is another amazing piece of flower art for your walls. Here the ’story’ shared is that of the amazing world of red tulips. Stretching out above the shades of green grass, the bright red tulips contrast with the teal toned sky. Either of these three dimensional prints will add museum quality good looks to a blank wall space in your home. They are also proudly made here in the USA.

About the Artist

Aja Trier was exposed to the world of art at a very young age. Her mother was actually a toll painter, and young Aja would “paint” on wood scraps left over from various wood projects. Gaining momentum with her love for painting as she neared the end of high school, she went on to attend Montserrat College of Art in Massachusetts; on scholarship no less. Upon graduation Aja began her own business named Sagittarius Gallery. Today her work has been shown in various art galleries around the United States, and has even been featured in a successful web zine, titled Pedestal Magazine. Aja’s love for thick oil paint and working with a palette knife is very apparent in these two prints showcased here, as it allows her to identify with and draw influence from, such Abstract Expressionists as Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning.
