Nurturing the Heart: The Multidisciplinary Artwork of Aurélie Beer
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Condesa, Lima artist Aurélie Beer in Plurality of Expression. The exhibition will open on January 21, 2017 and run through February 10, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 26 from 6-8 PM.
Aurélie Beer, a multidisciplinary artist, linguaphile, and global traveler, was born in Belgium but moved to London to study fashion design at Middlesex University. After graduating, she pursued a fashion career in Paris and China, living in the latter for many years. In this period of her life, she trained to become a doula, assisting women before, during, and after childbirth. She was also certified as an expressive art therapist. Now living in Peru, Beer has managed to channel the diversity of her life experience into a number of mediums, predominantly working with photography and painting, but also exploring ceramics and woodwork.
Beer’s photography, which alternates between portraiture and digital collage, features women of all kinds, from real-world migrants to phantasmal characters cloaked in paint. She believes that art creates a balanced life, establishing relationships and fostering a safe community. “I’ve been traveling the world as an artist for the last fifteen years, searching for other ways of learning and living life,” Beer says. “I searched for and nurtured my heart.”
Aurélie Beer currently lives and works in Lima, Peru.

About the Exhibition
The Many Worlds in "Plurality of Expression"
Agora Gallery is pleased to present Plurality of Expression, a new group exhibition highlighting the incredible diversity of visual language that the human mind is capable of creating. Seven artists are featured, among them painters, sculptors, photographers, and interdisciplinary artists. The group hails from a wide range of places including Peru, Romania, and Canada, and their far-flung origins influence their work in unexpected ways. Instead of any one artist creating pieces in a traditional or characteristic style of their home, this group represents the ever-increasing globalization of our world. Each artist shows knowledge of old and new techniques, and local and foreign aesthetics. Influences are cherished, but they are also interrogated and pushed further. Information travels quickly in the art world.
The strength of Plurality of Expression lies in just how different its featured artists are. One painter creates meticulously realistic tableaux of utterly fantastic landscapes - a road floating over an endless sky, or an egg that has sprouted its own feather. Another artist creates digital photographs exploring the nature of femininity through wondrously tactile liquids and fabrics. Yet another makes jewel-toned paintings of flat, serpentine figures, and another makes infinitely layered visions of the cosmos.
