Nuria González Alcaide is an abstract visual artist from Barcelona, Spain. She has been travelling during the last three years around Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and in European countries, experiences that reflect in her work.
Nuria works with painting and installation. Her intuitive brushstrokes modify while she developes her work, and they mutate into a more defined, precise and translucent shape.
The significance of location is pivotal to Nuria’s artistic methodology. She meticulously documents her surroundings, utilising an online archive of photographs to decipher the nuances of her environment and inform her artistic translation. This deliberate engagement with place serves as a foundation for her creative process.
She is also interested in the personal histories of local people, and likes to discover and share what they might keep silent for most of their lives; she is captivated by people that have a history related to personal trauma, immigration, borders and displacement, and how it has changed their physicality and psychology.
