Oil Paintings

Aurisch, Sally

Sally Aurisch is Italian trained although she grew up in country Western Australia, where the remote natural environment and its wildlife was her world and reflected in her work.

Sally’s mother, grandmother and great grandmother were all artists.  She has sketched and painted all her life but in her 20s and 30s made a successful career as a publicist representing promoters for international shows and artists.  These include names like Leonard Cohen and David Bowie, Peter Cook & Dudley Moore to list a few

She has painted for most of her life. After attending the 'Julian Ashton Art School' in Sydney she left Australia in the 90s to study the old masters' craft at its source in Florence, Italy.

There she trained with maestro Michael John Angel, founder of the Angel Academy of Art in Italy who is considered one of America’s leading portrait painters and leads the emerging interest in classic realist painting. Developed from art's golden age; the renaissance, its adherents have included Leonardo, Caravaggio, Raphael, Leighton and Rembrandt.

Since returning to Australia, Sally Aurisch has successfully exhibited with the 'Masterpiece Gallery' in Hobart and the 'Charles Hewitt' in Sydney.

Her work celebrates nature. Her paintings are usually allegorical and she often camouflages signs and symbols within her compositions.

She returns to paint in Italy most years and is currently working on her next show.

"Sally Aurisch's beautiful work combines the techniques of a classical training with a vision that is both poetic and surreal. Her paintings are provocative, haunting".
