More about this artwork

The painting depicts a graceful figure, appearing to be a woman, amidst a tranquil setting filled with architectural and natural elements. The woman’s attire is elegant and translucent, adorned with delicate patterns, and she holds a bird gently in one hand while clutching a small house in the other. Her facial expression is serene and slightly turned upwards as if engaging with the bird or gazing into the distance. A backdrop of warmly-toned geometric and organic shapes surrounds her, featuring smaller houses, some of which seem to blend into the foliage of intricately detailed autumn leaves that occupy the lower section of the artwork. Her feet are bare, implying a deep connection to her surroundings. The entire scene emits a sense of peace and protective oversight, emphasizing themes of guardianship and harmony with nature.

Looking at Aurika's paintings, viewers sometimes get the impression that perhaps the artist herself is an extraterrestrial being, but when asked about the main character of her work, Aurika will say that her angels are not biblical; they are metaphors for the goodness that humans spread. These angels bring gifts, protect homes, speak to birds, travel through the seasons and spread hope. The artist herself is also an eternal optimist for whom the glass is always more full than empty, so it is only natural that her positivity is reflected in her work.

"My Angel is always with me, and it's a pleasure when my paintings bring joy, peace and warmth to other people. I don't like publicity: my art is my life! I am happy to paint and to know that my paintings bring joy to people's hearts. We all have our Angels, and they are always by our side," says the artist.

Aurika works with an ancient, now forgotten tempera technique that requires skill and care. The artist herself says that creating details is a kind of meditation for her - she spends a lot of time on it, but at the same time manages to keep her work uncluttered, balanced and elegant. Also, the details always carry a coded message that everyone can decipher in their own way. For example, the black, dark blue in the works is a metaphor for space, while the horizontal lines divide the painting in time (now-later) and space (Earth-unknown).

And the most amazing thing is that, after so many years of working on the same theme, Aurika's paintings are never repetitive, and she is never short of ideas. She says that she often dreams about her paintings and then rushes to the studio to start a new work before the dream  dissapears.
