About the Artist

Stemming from the marriage of realism and abstraction,
Lauric’s unique paintings reflect the diversity of her life and professional experiences.

Oana Lauric, American artist born in Bucharest Romania, lived in Paris France for a decade and is currently working in her studio in Boston, USA. She has a French Architect degree and a Romanian Fine Arts Baccalaureate. Oana worked as an architect and a designer for several years in France and USA, before becoming a professional artist painter in 2001.

"In my paintings, I explore the impact of our environment on our psyche; I believe that the surroundings we create influence the way we behave. The experience of discovering a quality urban environment that stimulates all senses is always a subtle, nevertheless fantastic adventure.

My paintings reflect a voyage, a movement through space and time, a dynamic perception of our man-made environment. Through perceptions of light and shadows, depth and chromatic intensity, matching visual and auditive rhythms or contrasting textures, my intent is to signal the power of our surroundings and hopefully raise expectations in their regards.

"We are shaped by these spaces as much as we shape them!"

Lauric is showing her art at the Artoujours Gallery, Copley Society of Art in Boston MA,
Scott Bundy Galleries in Kennebunkport, ME, J.Todd Galleries in Wellesley MA and The Chatham Gallery in Chatham, MA

She is a Member of Copley Society of Art, an Associate Member of American Women Artists
and a fellow artist member of the St. Botolph Club.
