in Mumbai, India, in 1955. - After completing her studies, Firoozyves
(Firooza Aubry) spent several years in Germany where she worked as a
foreign language secretary. It was during this time that she started
experimenting with painting on silk and held five solo exhibitions of
her work in 1989 and 1990.
She returned to live in India in December
1990 where she lives with her husband in Auroville. Since then, she
has participated in various collective exhibitions and had also solo
exhibitions in south India, as well in Montreal (Canada), Berlin (Germany)
and other places in India.
Firoozyves' spontaneous landscapes take you on a journey into unknown
worlds and encourage you to dive into a firework of vibrant blues, burnt
umber and yellow ochre. The eye travels along cosmic rays which are
constantly changing, thus creating mysterious three-dimensional effects,
depending on the light and the position of the viewer. Firoozyves does
not want to convey a particular message, but encourages the observer
to be free in one's of individual interpretation.
It is only through the ease with which her brushstroke
travels on the silk that one is still reminded of the fundamental principles
of the impressionist. Her originality is documented by an unusual painting
style, which has nothing to do anymore with traditional silk painting.
Firoozyves paints on natural silk from India.
The special imported silk paint is applied in thin translucent layers,
a technique which is adapted from traditional oil painting.
