about Laura Nieto

Medina del Campo, (Valladolid), 1978

For the past few years my work has been a reflection on the act of paying attention, the passage of time and on memory. Through figuration, my work recreates places, people, brief moments of everyday life; these sketches reveal the landscapes through which we move and live each day – the ones we are oblivious to because we have interiorized them. I look for specifically pictorial values with which to transmit visual experiences of slow tempo, in which I make conscious use of a resource: the non finito. Leaving unfinished shapes, blank areas of the canvas or visible traces of drawn contours. This allows me to explore lightness and the undefined, to challenge the idea of the conventional finish and to value the multiple readings of the viewer and his or her specifically visual experiences. I conceive of all these scenes with the desire and the intention of upholding our right to contemplation and of inducing a new kind of appreciation for reality in the viewer, one in which experimentation and aesthetic pleasure are guaranteed.

about the artist's works

Creator of human landscapes, Laura Nieto takes painting as a means to make us dream. Her works represent scenes full of life through stunning canvases that take small breaths of self-reference to turn them into a purely aesthetic experience. Pieces from the normality of the social encounter claim those moments in which we return to our humanity in the face of the madness and vertigo of our society. Scenes full of life that you get with the use of graffiti spray and with small spots that together with oil make up everyday scenes, meetings in cafes, breaths of fresh air in the street, the smell of food from a street stall and makes us dream, invites us to get into the scene and catches us.
