In 1989 Nievas decides to stay all alone in front of the canvas, facing great artistic challenges.

Very thoughtful interventions under an appearance of spontaneity. From the preparation of the solid background, when subtle lines and stains are left, to the areas where more material is concentrated, using curious tools, like dry brushes, spatulas, piercing objects, wire bundles, etc.

These constants throughout these years of work, bring us to this piece from 2019, where the big blue brushstrokes on the calcareous white create the tension and character of the work.

With a minimum reference to visible and identifiable shapes, it invites us to create an informal poetry. In this case, the memory of a woman playing the lyre with a strange feline laying on her feet.

Fernando Nievas
Fernando Nievas

Born in 1956 in Alfaro, La Rioja (Spain), Fernando got interested in arts at an early age.

Studying academic art at high school and his increasing interest in the avant-garde took him to Madrid in the 70’s. Along with his self-taught background he worked and collaborated with several artists. All the while learning different pictorial, modelling, foundry and printing techniques (serigraphy, engraving, etc). Those were the years of his first exhibitions.

In the 80’s Fernando goes back to his hometown Alfaro, where he sets up his studio. During this decade he combined his experimental work and research with commissioned decorative paintings.

From the 90’s onwards he has been exclusively dedicated to his art.

"I take creative approaches and when I start to get too comfortable I sabotage my own work. When the tension fades away, it is better to change rather than feeling a slave of my own style."
