OF THE PINE, Nuria (Madrid, 1969). “Dog”, 2013. Oil on canvas. Certificate of authenticity is attached. Measurements: 75x65cm. Nuria del Pino has lived in the Canary Islands since she was six years old. He studied and has been exhibiting in Madrid, Barcelona, London, Boston... He ventured into a variety of artistic languages, but found his best form of expression in painting, a field in which his training is practically self-taught. "My Artwork has to do with space and our relationship with it. It has to do with the big and the small, with what is inside and outside of us, with the universe. The wide, immense desert landscape that surrounds me in the The island of Fuerteventura is a constant in my Artwork and serves as a vehicle to delve into the landscape of the soul. I like to use different techniques depending on the Artwork and the moment, and introduce figurative elements in a Artwork with abstract characteristics". He has held exhibitions at the Emma Gallery in Madrid, at the Juan Ismael Art Center, Fuerteventura, at the Bahia Real Hotel in Fuerteventura, at the Paloma 18 Gallery in Burgos, at the Tostón Castle in Fuerteventura, and at the itinerant Naviera Armas (Canary Islands). , in Cuasimoda, Barcelona, among others. It has a permanent exhibition of Painting and Sculpture in the Art Gallery, Lajares, Fuerteventura. Del Pino has internalized the rugged nature of Fuerteventura, the Atlantic currents that continuously move cumulus of fine sand, making the desert a living animal with changing orography. Vastness and limits are reconciled in the paintings of this artist, who transfers to the canvas the experience of living in a paradoxical space, of feeling oneself in the middle of an infinite desert and at the same time knowing oneself surrounded by the vast ocean. On other occasions, this internalization process leads to incursions into pure abstraction, enveloping and metaphysical. His animals are also charged with metaphysical resonances and telluric memories.
