interesting how you can take an idea and make it your own

i found that i didn't even notice the 'faces' till i reached the 3rd or 4th picture! i wonder if there is something odd in me.

I can't help but be fascinated by her work. It is SO detailed... I wonder how much time each drawing takes? Everything is so beautiful and fantastical but always a little bit frightening at the same time, and some of the elements (the bugs, snakes, and other things I can't write here ) are really grotesque as well. Overall I'm kind of in love.

Aurel Schmidt - So Damn Pure
Words by Amy Westervelt
Photos by Derek Peck (in her home)

Eyes that sparkle from a distance but up close are made of flies or spiders, drawn with such delicate detail as to make them lovely…and a little gross at the same time. Modern masterpieces by de Kooning, Pollack, and Picasso reimagined from a punk, female perspective, complete with empty beer cans, cigarette butts, and “paint” made of urine.
This is the work of Aurel Schmidt, perhaps best exemplified by So Damn Pure, the central piece of her Deitch Projects Maneater show. When Morris Louis poured rivers of paint on canvases in the 1950s, critics referred to it as the purest form of painting. Schmidt turns this purity inside out, covering the canvas instead with “impure” fluids. “I just wanted to get all these things from my life … pee, cum, period blood, Pepto Bismol … all these impure fluids, and make the anti-pure painting,” she explains.
After this purge, Schmidt may be ready to move on to new sources of inspiration. Self-taught, the Canadian-born, New York-based artist has worked her way through the masters, scored her first big solo show at age 25, and is now ready to enter into the next phase of her career. The Deitch Projects show, held in October 2008, was a turning point for the artist in almost every way possible.

Is there any more info on this girl? She made it on to Refinery's "one to watch It Girls for 2010"?

•Aurel Schmidt—Mega-babe Aurel Schmidt's been featured in Paper and Purple magazines this year, but we're guessing it's only the beginning of her ascent to the tippy-top of It Girl'dom.

she is very creative and she makes some interesting art, but she is way too vulgar for me. And her art is too grotesque

I enjoy her sense of irony. It's almost gimmicky, but just shy enough to be interesting and thought provoking.
