It was following the loss of an artist friend dear to Aurélie Bauer that she was inspired to pay tribute to her colleagues by creating works on canvas that took inspiration from their studio spaces. Her paintings thus transpose us to the very heart of creation, mixing intimacy, experiences or even the exaltation of the birth of a unique work. In this way, Bauer reveals a new visual realm that is, most of the time, inaccessible.
As Pierre Berthier, Art Historian and Critic notes: “With her tender, pacifying sensitivity, Aurélie Bauer invites us to enter these reserved worlds and happily transforms a modest, often disorderly and confused reality into poetic fiction. It is both a pictorial and graphic report."
