Nieves S.

Exhi­bi­tion from 11/24/2021 - 01/22/2022




Nieves Salz­mann, born in 1976 in Les Lilas (France), stud­ied at the Ècole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In her painter­ly work she deals with land­scapes and urban worlds. She walks through urban no man’s land, aban­doned out­skirts, indus­tri­al areas and desert­ed often unde­fined places. Per­spec­tives, roads, traces and con­tin­u­ous lines that stretch into the dis­tance fas­ci­nate the artist. The pecu­liar­i­ty of these urban land­scapes, the out­skirts, the no-man’s‑land appeal to them. She likes to use the vari­ety of media. Her land­scapes, cityscapes and archi­tec­tur­al land­scapes are paint­ed on can­vas, wood, walls, trac­ing paper, Plex­i­glas and recy­cled ele­ments. The every­day places, through large flat areas of col­or that favor black, gray, green, ocher yel­low and white, are com­ple­ment­ed with mate­r­i­al coin­ci­dences. The elab­o­rate geo­met­ric com­po­si­tions, the treat­ment of space with van­ish­ing lines, slants, hor­i­zon­tals and ver­ti­cals allow a deep­er read­ing of Nieves Salzmann’s works in infi­nite per­spec­tives. Nieves Salz­mann lives and works in Paris.
New works by the artist are pre­sent­ed in the exhibition.
