My practice began in starts and stops. In the winter of 2000 while attending culinary school, I decided one day to purchase acrylic paints, brushes, and canvases and see what happened. I played in the medium for a month or so before moving onto another creative outlet. Being a chef for the following 15 years didn’t leave much time for a hobby but acrylics would sneak back in for a couple weeks at a time throughout that period.

I began exploring two divergent paths in the summer of 2015. On one I found grace and strength; women demanding to be seen, giving pause to those who passed. They have power beyond the canvas. they delve into our being and reflect what we want to see in ourselves. This path is inspiring as an artist. These women are apart from me but they influence who I am. They take me to the realm of realistic fantasy; beyond my normal but not outside of my reach.

The other path is much more reflective. The abstracts are pieces of myself coming out into the world. These are an intuitive release that I only come to recognize upon completion of the work. My abstract pieces allow me to travel deeper into my beliefs and my thoughts. One canvas is composed of a hundred thoughts thereby becoming a novel to be read and reread. They are as varied as my thoughts but collections slowly reveal themselves the longer I participate in their creation. I see these paintings as true reflections of who I am as an artist; a constant balancing game between light and dark, heavy intentional strokes and arbitrary spots, there is movement and action.

The deeper my practice the more I realize that those two paths reference and connect in ways I could not have seen. The freedom of exploring creativity only connects me more soundly to my path of self awareness and the two paths converge to both broaden and concentrate my work.

I began to sell professionally in the fall of 2015 and painting became my full time vocation in the summer of 2016.

My studio is in my home in Saint Lambert, Quebec.

He has always been ahead of the times…
His new collection of paintings brings an incredible
display of colors, strength and imagination
characteristic of all his creations.
His abstract style shows the journey thru his roots,
art learnt from el ‘Grupo Barranquila at ‘La Cueva’,
his colors and the maturity of 50 years experience.

Nowadays, he is dedicated to painting producing a
vast array of creations where his imagination has no
boundaries.

“My art activates the imagination into infinite levels…
only the observer possesses its message.”

Musings of the Soul

by Aurora Art

Bursting with Joy

Bursting with Joy

I have been creating what I like to call Organic Abstract Art on my ipad now for about a year. I am self taught, and follow no rules other than the often untamed but fearless musings of my soul…

Dance of Souls

Dance of Souls

My training as a dancer and my work with textiles combine in my art and allow the creation of pieces that have depth of both texture and movement – abstracts that come organically from inner impulses – to me it is as if I am dancing when I create my pieces –I have always believed in the beauty of improvisational dance – the creation of a pure moment – and so it is when I create these pieces…

Continuous Energy Flow

Continuous Energy Flow

Energy and Flow feature again and again in my pieces – the energy that is within us all, is all encompassing, and from where creativity flows …

Natural flow

Natural flow

Flow to unfold all …
Fleeing familiarity
And swiftly turn to face freedom…

Art is indeed food for the soul, which in turn nourishes our awareness and consciousness…this piece I created for my cousin Maren (meaning sea) we were very close when we were children although our meetings were few  – magical days spent by the waters edge.

Maren

Maren

See you then the world little one, from afar
Never in it, but as if from a distant plain
Take the sorrows and let them wash over your skin
Enfold in your small tiny arms each weeping joy
And every moment, devour it in your sweet breath
Innocent eyes on every beauty feast

Take the blood that runs in your veins
And run with it to the waters edge
Where you drink of sweet purity
To cleanse your inner heart
And there do rest and stay awhile
To listen to the earth singing to you
Its sweet song of life

I love discovering new textures and delve deeply with effects and layers.

Inner Elegance

I have no fixed image in mind when I start and they are often created very quickly…with swift dance like movements.

I am constantly surprised by the textures that can be achieved … almost like textile art.

Being a dancer by nature, I find words often limiting and prefer the art to speak for itself…

Patti AgapiA self-taught and ever-evolving Canadian abstract artist, Patti Agapi channels her creative expression into vibrant abstract paintings and intricate mixed media and collage art. She works with acrylic paints and various collage elements – found and vintage papers, pencil, metal leaf, plaster, metal and fabric. Patti’s abstract paintings are most often stimulating eye-candy, intense and engaging. Her mixed media & collage pieces evoke a curiosity and sense of mystery – each piece is a microcosmic journey of layers via intricate connections of text, texture and color.

The core themes of her work revolve around perception and personal reflection, and the mysterious ethereal elements of reality.

Patti lives in Orillia, Ontario, Canada and between catering to two boys, studiously works on creating Art.  She is a member of the collective art gallery Peter Street Fine Arts Gallery & Studio where she occupies a small downtown studio and shows her work on a regular basis.  She is also a member of the artist-run Zephyr Gallery in Orillia,
