Carla Aurich Paintings 2005


My work is informed by place. The weaving together of interior and exterior space and what exists in between. This body of work reflects the environment I live in and move through around and over on a daily basis. Using a vocabulary of horizontal and vertical forms to reference architecture and light, I am interested in spaces that bridge, connect and frame parts of the landscape. It is the duality of nature and structure, separation and connectedness that I choose to explore in these paintings.

The use of color and surface in my work reflect the textures and colors of various landscapes as experienced through time and memory. Saturated color and reduced formal elements merge to capture the essence of a particular moment. Thinking about landscape, light changing, atmosphere and how one's particular relationship to place shapes that memory form the basis of my approach in this series of paintings.
