This Saturday, December 1, VARGA Gallery hosts visionary artist Aurora from 5 – 7pm for an Artist Talk in the Solo Exhibition Space to discuss and elaborate upon her works and theories currently on exhibit in "Sacred Geometry and the Latticework of the Universal Mind." Those interested in the potentials of the human mind, tessellations, string theory, the science of color, the meaning of rainbows, multi-dimensional physics and meta-physics are invited to attend. The exhibit runs through December 31, 2007.

Aurora studied art formally at Bard College (Class of ’96), but approaches art-making in strict accordance with her own inner vision and self-directed aesthetic. As a walk-in she receives inspiration and guidance from angels/aliens who she describes as her spirit friends. Aurora considers art-making an aspect of her partnership with Spirit and approaches art as an act of faith.

”I attempt to embody the perfection of the universal pattern, then express its movement in a painting.” She uses a self-imposed system of rules to perform each painting freehand using a one-inch reference grid of dots. The pinnacle of her creative output is the “Flying Rainbow Lasagne” named for its resemblance to the edge of a curly lasagne noodle. The shape, invented by Aurora as the solution to a mathematical/spiritual problem, is an impossible shape like a coin with only one side that always comes up heads.

“’The Flying Rainbow Lasagne’ is a shape which represents non-duality and shows how we may achieve our full potential as humans by dancing in partnership with Spirit. It represents the combination of spirit and matter on a genetic level. To embody the ‘Flying Rainbow Lasagne’ is to achieve mastery over greater reality and live in a state of Heaven on earth. It is the secret to dying without dying.”




AURORA with Big Fish
 
INVITATION TO EVOLVE

Are you tired of living on auto-pilot?
Are you convinced that human potential goes far beyond the ability to mass-produce a uniform french fry?
Would you be more likely to befriend an alien
than to barbeque it? Are you tired of dying?
Well, let go your preconceptions about space and time
and prepare to shed your pupal form.
You are cordially invited to the cosmic ball.
The doorway to eternity is opening...
won't you step through and dance with the stars?

I love shapes.     
Squares feel solid and secure, and a field of them feels very comfortable to me.
     Diamonds are thrilling!  The way they balance on point just like ballerinas, they are graceful and elegant.   
   Triangles have their own beautiful sense of balance, and I enjoy looking at them and evaluating their angles --
equilateral or right.  It's like a game, to me:
will it make a hexagon or an octogon?
Hexagons are beautiful and I love them because they are what snowflakes and the muscles of the human body and the physicality of this realm are based
upon.  Hexagons stack pefectly next to each other without any 'dead space' in between the shapes.  
       Octogons are beautiful and I love them in a different way because they are more challenging to work with: they represent the heavenly realm. 
Octogons do not stack perfectly next to one another unless you size them down propotionately, filling in the gaps with a smaller generation exactly half of its
size. This leaves more gaps, which can then be filled in with another generation exactly half its size, continually. 

     When I walk down the street, I love looking for shapes.
  I am thrilled when I see the perfection of five pefect cirlces on a hubcap. 
I love to see the squares woven into the patterns on peoples' clothing. 
I love to walk on a tiled floor, especially when the tiles are canted at an angle so that they create diamonds.     

  My paintings are based upon certain 'rules' some of which come from sacred geometry and some of which are totally self-imposed. 
The rules are meaningful and consistent and the story that they tell is about My Love Affair With The Abstract.  
    At the end of my day, I turn down the lights and put on music by Miles Davis and sit in front of my paintings
and the squares and diamonds and circles and hexagons are my lover. 
To look at them is like spending time looking at the face of my husband,
and to know and embody these shapes on a deep level is like making love to The Abstract.

"Flying Rainbow Lasagne (prototype)"
6" x 12"
sculpey on copper armature
Not For Sale

The Flying Rainbow Lasagne is a shape which I invented.
It is an impossible shape, like a one sided coin.
The outside of one cone becomes the inside of the next cone,
and the inside of the next cone becomes the outside of the next one.
It is a one-sided shape!
This is "allowed" according to the rules of sacred geometry
and forms a stable shape
because the purple dot which exists at either end of this shape
moves so quickly back and forth that is exists in both places
at the same time.

This prototype serves as a small scale model for a larger project which I will build in the future.
