Press Release

The everyday world can be a source for inspiring art, and the work of Aurora Ave is proof of that. Her beautiful portraiture features people in unassuming situations: a moment of reverie, a phone call, a chat amongst friends. Yet in these moments where all pretenses have vanished, Ave shows us what it means to be human. The compositions are always simple, yet further reflection reveals an elegance and forthrightness appropriate to their subject matter. The artist’s brush modulates shadow and flesh-tones with a generous amount of acrylic or oil paint in a natural palette. Growing up in New York City influenced her creative life as she watched human drama unfold countless times. Her creative process hinges upon observation: a quick sketch captures the scene and then she turns to the canvas to recreate the unique moment in living color. “Recreating what I see, to glorify the authentic person, gives me enormous joy,” she explains. “If the viewer becomes engaged, I’ve succeeded.”

Aurora Ave’s successful career in the art world spans five decades. She lives in Florida.
