Núria Fernández Puig Pintora Painter

Núria Fernández Puig

statement

The current motivation in my painting is the vindication of being. The human essence that distances us from artificial intelligence. The power to feel and be able to transmit these feelings and emotions using painting. For this reason, I strive to put in each of my art works the emotional ingredient that differentiates us from machines. An ingredient that is not tangible, not visible, but sensitive.

Painting requires an intellectual effort from me full of experiences, feelings, emotions, studies, knowledge, trials and errors. A continuous search for non-objective beauty in the most everyday objects for personal representation. A non-algorithmic, not exact, not ordered formula, simply a human formula. With so many unknowns, a single solution is not possible. For this reason my painting does not follow a rigorous pattern. She is impulsive and capricious, depending on moods and experiences. Although there is a common denominator in it, which I cannot give up: color. For better or worse, color has been a constant in my work since my beginnings, something innate to it. I consider color as a force that I have to deal with. A force capable of unbalancing a painting, and also capable of elevating it to infinity.

Núria Fernández Puig was born in Torrent (Valencia, Spain) in 1972. Drawing and painting have always been a concern for her. She studies Technical Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, where she graduated in 1997. Since then she works as a liberal professional Technical Architect. In the summer of 1998 she made the first two paintings oil of hers in a self-taught way. But his profession leaves him little time to devote to painting and his production is very scarce until 2012. It was in this year when, due to the critical situation of the construction sector in Spain, he had the time necessary to dedicate to his true vocation. , the painting. Since then she combines her profession of technical architect with pictorial practice. In January 2014, she begins to attend classes at the RoMarAlArt Academy of Fine Arts in Torrent (Valencia). In September 2014, she began her study of Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia where she graduated in 2020.

Her pictorial work is varied and free, it cannot be pigeonholed. Her first works are figurative, but an expressive intention towards abstraction emerges from her pictorial evolution. Her main influence the nature that unfolds around the color with total freedom. These are to date the three constant attributes in Núria Fernández’s work: nature, color, and freedom.
