Firooza Aubry

Firoozyves' spontaneous landscapes take you on a journey into unknown worlds and encourage you to dive into a firework of vibrant blues, burnt umber and yellow ochre. The eye travels along cosmic rays which are constantly changing, thus creating mysterious three-dimensional effects, depending on the light and the position of the viewer.

It is only through the ease with which her brushstroke travels on the silk that one is still reminded of the fundamental principles of the impressionist. Her originality is documented by an unusual painting style, which has nothing to do anymore with traditional silk painting.
Firoozyves paints on natural silk from India. The silk paint is applied in thin translucent layers, a technique which is adapted from traditional oil painting.

Born in 1955 in India, Firooza Aubry (Firoozyves) now lives in Montreal, Canada. In the late 1980s, she discovered the sinuous and translucent qualities of silk painting. Now specializing in silk paint on natural silk, her abstract works have been in various collective exhibitions and solo exhibitions across India, as well in Montreal (Canada) and Berlin (Germany).
