Here at LondonArt, we are continually look out for artists who approach their work in a unique or interesting way. When Indian born artist Firooza Aubry began experimenting with painting on silk, she discovered a method for creating utterly beguiling and beautiful works that entrance and excite art lovers around the world. See how the blues run together and contrast with the bleeding reds and pinks to create dripping and gorgeous effects across the silk. Sometimes the only difference between good and bad abstract art is its ability to move the viewer. Clearly, Aubry has succeeded in creating work that is wonderfully affecting and emotionally resounding. There is a depth and intrigue to these paintings, a aura of wonder and discovery that is almost impossible to put into words.
By painting the intangible subjects of emotion, dream and the cosmos, Aubry relies on her ability to use colour and shape to invoke feeling and emotion. She manages to make the whites she uses in her Dreamscape and Imagination paintings look impossibly fresh and clean. Set against the deeply coloured backgrounds they ring with a simple clarity that makes them appear alive. Her Secret of the Cosmos painting achieves a reflective balance and symmetry that shows the universe is in perfect order. Groups of colour build into swirling balls and hang, wonderfully balanced against the background of simple light and dark. In Remembrance she frames the colours within a symbolic boarder of gold, as though the viewer is looking at the infinite through a window of her making. At her best Aubry manages to make that trick look simple. Delicate and beautiful, these paintings deserve the artist of the week award.
