Art and energy meet at RinconArt

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAThe featured artist this month at RinconArt Studio and Gallery, 440 Main St. in Placerville, is Aurora Aguirre. Aurora was born and raised in Hawaii and many of her paintings today are influenced by her love of the islands. Much of Aurora’s work focuses on her native land of Hawaii, its culture, flora, marine mammals and raising awareness of the importance in protecting sea life.

Aguirre has a unique style which she refers to as dimensional mixed mediums. She first uses a blend of resins and mixed vehicles with pigments to create an abstract effect. She then embellishes on the abstract image she sees in the piece to add a realistic element. The use of resin layers creates a depth to her work that is breathtaking.

Aguirre has been perfecting this process over many years.

To Aguirre, art is like an old best friend. Creating art allows her to freely express her emotions while it brings her great comfort.

In her studio, she can freely express herself and not feel judged. She fully understands why artists escape to their creative space where the world seems to disappear for awhile.

To her, art is a gift from God that enables her to reach out and touch others.

Although her two-dimensal art is her first creative love, this artist is expressive in other ways as well.

She plays classical ukulele, dances the hula and hip hop, and her latest endeavor is learning to play the drums. She is a petite ball of artistic energy.

Aguirre has been living in Rancho Santa Margarita since 1987. She is owner and instructor of Art Appetite School where she currently teaches children and adults in small group, semi private and private art classes. She has attained a Certificate of Achievement in American Sign Language which enables her to offer art lessons to deaf children and adults. Her teaching specialties are water mixable oil painting and drawing lessons.

The public is invited to Third Saturday Art Walk on Sept. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. to meet Aguirre and the many other artists in the gallery. There will be hors d’oeuvres, live music and a video demonstration of the process she uses to create her unique art.

To see more of her work go to rinconart.com and aurorafineart.com.
