What is characteristic in this series from 2018 is the use of flat and solid tones for the background, combining these acrylic surfaces with the lacquered texture of the main characters, persons, animals, still-lives, etc.

This technique based on the improvisation, allows him to give more concessions to the figurative approach and play with classical iconography: nude, still-life, etc.

Creating a latent confusion between the perspective and the shadows of the characters. When looking at the painting we feel both restlessness and attraction due to the geometric chaos, inviting us to focus our attention on the main figure, a bit ‘decomposed’. This ‘decomposition’ comes from a certain degree of causality. The lacquered surfaces have been created through improvised serigraphy on different fabric textures. This is an inherited technique from the year before series ‘People in transit’.

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."

Fernando Nievas
