Nuria González Alcaide
Nuria González Alcaide is a 26-year-old self-taught painter who has gone through an introversion process. Now, she is able to connect with what she wants to capture and transmit with her works. This process begins with the barrier that she always found when creating. She didn’t feel she was free, both mentally and emotionally. The term perfection was part of that limit that she set herself every day, and by being able to go beyond it, her vision of art has totally changed. Instead of having perfection as a weakness, she has decided to use it to create.
She focuses on the emotions and feelings that are hidden in today’s society. She uses that because of her personal experience trying to fit in this world. Today, she has realized she does not need to fit in, she needs to be happy with what she does. That's a message she sends too with her artworks; she encourages the viewer to follow their heart and dreams. She also finds inspiration on the concept of life, where she tries to break our “planned” days and tells that life is in constant changing and movement, on our thoughts, where she draw them and says they are more real than we thought, and on the human pain, where it goes and how we deal with it.
While creating, she focuses on the use of color and texture that she accomplishes with layers, mediums and the scratch technique, as long as plays with the size of the canvas and its material. Those layers are the reflection of the patches that humans on throughout our lives.
