I look forward seeing you!"Bio Aurora Filipescu
I like to call myself a self-taught Canadian – American artist whose passion for ceramics is driven by an inexplicable urge to connect with the nature, the animals and the earth. The process of creation fills my heart with peace and gratitude as I feel eternally thankful for the dishes I design and use around my home. I am grateful for the food I am eating very day as well as the cups, and plates, and bowls, knowing that someone, perhaps an artist, put his heart into making them beautiful pieces of art.
After I moved to Toronto from Los Angeles in 2013 I found myself in a place of exploration of my artistic being wanting to create but not being quite sure what; I joined a sculpture studio in town where I volunteer my hours and created ceramics and sculpture in between. I decided to leave the painting behind feeling somehow disappointed of the challenging journey I had to follow as a fine artist.
During my 9 years stay in Los Angeles, I dedicated my time painting in oil and water color but mostly using acrylic as a medium. The result was touching even to the self critic living inside of me. So, I continued to develop my skills and listen to my inspiration while oscillating between abstract and portraiture painting. Sometimes I was reluctant to give a title to my paintings. In those moments I believe that art is an intimate experience that the viewer may want to experience on his or her own before sharing it with others.
In 2011 I attended an artist workshop in Montana where I deepened my understanding of light and value in plain-air landscape art.
