Lauric, Romanian born artist, Italian by adoption,
in Paris France for a decade and is currently residing in Maine, USA.
Has a French Architect DPLG degree and a Romanian Fine Arts Baccalaureate.
Worked as an architect and a designer for several years before officially
becoming a professional artist painter in 2001. Owner of ARToujours
studio & gallery.
art in general, and her Scenes series specifically, allow her the creative
freedom she yearned for as an architect.
The reality of architectural work, she said, is that most of the time
the original design must be altered because of monetary
or other concerns. She found this constant need for compromise frustrating:Whether
architectural renderings accurately depict a completed building or a
utopia, they are founded on the power of
intention and fed by unchained imagination. They sometimes are true
works of art! she said.
Imagine then the pain of, say, a sculptor, who sees
his finished sculpture slowly dismembered for the
sake of budgeting or function, she added.
Working as an artist gives her the creative freedom she desired,
while her background as an architect, as well as personal
experiences and the places shes lived, inform her art.
"As an artist, I play with colors, mediums and textures,
while as a trained architect I explore, virtually without
the impact of the built environment on our
psyche. Through volumes, color and spaces, depths,
scale and perspective,
my hope is to signal the power of
and hopefully raise expectations. We are
shaped by these spaces as much as we shape them, she said.
