The Artist

Del Aor, a French artist with Catalan roots, was born in the town of Cognac in 1950 and has been painting since childhood. After grooming her mind with studies in pure mathematics and philosophy, she enhanced her career through extensive travelling when she went out to meet people on their own territories.

At the same time, she worked hard on pictorial matter, always taking her research to new lengths.

A long stay in Asia helped her to deepen her knowledge of Eastern thought and to practice Chinese exercises in energy. By combining the breath she takes with the movement she makes, she has drawn closer to ever new frontiers in painting.

Her work is an infinitely challenging balance between the meticulous precision of lines, the use of space and the sensuality of matter to produce the “right sound”, which vibrates well beyond each work.

On the outskirts of Paris in her studio home surrounded by an Oriental-style bamboo garden, Del Aor draws on the tranquillity, concentration and contact with nature she needs for her research. Far from the frenetic chaos of the city, she composes, decomposes and juxtaposes colours, matter and gold to attain the fourth dimension, where space and time come together. The eye wanders in pace with the subtle correspondence between volumes and planes, succumbs to the fascination of balance of force between the materiality of her works and the capture of the immateriality of space. Like an astronomer scrutinizing the universe, the eye of the onlooker discovers in her paintings the infinite, or rather the infinites, constellated in tiny golden particles. Emptiness and fullness find their balance, colour and light are jubilant. Emptiness creates a zone of meditation prompting inner peace. Fullness, filled with sinuously shaped golden particles, is activated with an intense vibration which, as a whole, irradiates supreme harmony.

A dialogue between rigour and light-heartedness.
