| Moma De Louvre is primarily known as Ava Avione
|This biography from the Archives of AskART:|
Ava Avione aka Moma De Louvre was born Pamela Jeanne Weston in 1942. She resided in the Boston environs attending Derby Academy and Thayer Academy. At 18 she married astrophysicist Brownlee Warren Gauld, known for his contributions to the Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter Missions. He was an astrophysicist at the Lawrence Radiation Lab in Berkeley and for 40 years at Cal Tech in Pasadena. Ava and Brownlee moved to Berkeley, CA in the 60’s. Brownlee gave Ava her freedom to pursue her passions ten years later. They had a son in 1966, Alexander Weston Gauld, now an attorney in San Francisco.
Ava attended UCB Berkeley in the 60’s and graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from the U. of Oregon in 1972. She produced in the field of Architecture from the 60’s through the 80’s creating concept designs for hundreds of large commercial projects while pursuing with passion her art career.
Avione started painting while still a child at three years old, following visions that continued all her life. She created an art movement called Multidimensional Expressionism in the 60’s, coining the phrase “Vibratory Art” and continued, as a figure painter, to explore these energies lifelong.
Ava combined the best pigments available with her own archival extenders and binders enabling her to create with pure color. She is best known for her 4’ by 8’ canvases depicting multidimensional beings. 150 of these masterworks are currently on display at her “Living Museum” in Northern CA. Ava Created 80 of these “Living Museums” in 80 countries as well as many in the United States as an example to artists to found their own systems of creation, showings, and marketing as most Museums can house less than .001 percent of artists’ works.
Revenues generated from her work are used to finance further projects as well as for charitable donations. In addition 5,000 sq. ft. of archives are available for viewing at her “Living Museum”.
