[A]ryton is an artist living in Hawaii. His fascination with the calming effects of working with less and rerouting perspective began quite organically, in an Instagram rabbit hole of minimalism architecture. Ad Reinhardt, an abstract impressionist painter commented that the busier a work of art is, the worse it is and the first step to creating art was to reduce nature. In that sense Aryton’s Instagram account repurposes the tropes of a tropical paradise – palms, sunsets and beachfronts – to emphasise the infinite capacity of images to suggest with unconventional crops, manipulated gradients and a scrupulous paring down of concept.
