VANESSA MAC AULIFFE

Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition
September 16 - October 6, 2015
Reception: Thursday September 17, 2015 6-8 PM

Long inspired by music, Vanessa Mac Auliffe composes abstract oil paintings that act as a portrait of sound. Imploding, exploding, and dripping like artfully melted plastic, her works utilize a rich color palette, ranging from aquatic tones to sanguine bursts of sun. “The abstract nature of my art has a purpose,” Mac Auliffe says, “to unveil the rhythm or vibration that resides in each one of us.”

Before she begins painting, Mac Auliffe enters a period of self-reflection in which she considers her own life and how it relates to the wider human experience. This process is key for Mac Auliffe, whose goal is to connect her viewers with their own humanity and to spark a form of dialogue between the viewer and the piece itself. “I am completely free when I paint,” Mac Auliffe says. “Perhaps these are my only truly lived moments, a time that has no past or future, where the ‘now’ flows.” In this timeless haven, Mac Auliffe becomes capable of surpassing any limitations, and she is free to search for new colors and forms, a new language.
