  • Nuria Del Pino: "Landscape" (2012)

    DEL PINO, Nuria (Madrid, 1969). “Landscape”, 2012. Acrylic on canvas. Attach certificate of authenticity. Measurements: 85x60 cm. Nuria del Pino has lived in the Canary Islands since she was six years old. He has exhibited in Madrid, Barcelona, London, Boston... He ventured into a variety of artistic languages, but found his best form of expression in painting, a field in which his training is practically self-taught. "My Artwork has to do with space and our relationship with it. It has to do with the big and the small, with what is inside and outside of us, with the universe. The wide, immense desert landscape that surrounds me in the The island of Fuerteventura is a constant in my Artwork and it serves as a vehicle for me to delve into the landscape of the soul. I like to use different techniques depending on the Artwork and the moment, and introduce figurative elements into a Artwork with abstract characteristics". He has held exhibitions at the Emma Gallery in Madrid (May, 2013), at the Juan Ismael Art Center, Fuerteventura (2012-2010), at the Bahia Real Hotel in Fuerteventura, at the Paloma 18 Gallery in Burgos, at the Tostón Castle in Fuerteventura, in the itinerant Naviera Armas (Canary Islands), in Cuasimoda, Barcelona, among others. He has a permanent exhibition of Painting and Sculpture in the Art Gallery, Lajares, Fuerteventura. Del Pino has internalized the wild nature of Fuerteventura, the Atlantic currents that continuously move clusters of fine sand making the desert a living animal of changing orography. Vastness and confinement are reconciled in the paintings of this artist, who transfers to canvas the experience of living in a paradoxical space, of feeling in the middle of an infinite desert and at the same time knowing that she is surrounded by the vast ocean. On other occasions, this internalization process leads to incursions into pure, enveloping, and metaphysical abstraction.
