Although very refined and sometimes abstract, the artist painter Nadia Vuillaume’s painting has been classified by art critics, in 2012, as expressive figurative, or neo-figurative, representation, or more or less allegorical, up to cubist.
This can be explained by the importance she gives to the lines and strokes that structure her color fields. The line creates the representation, the color the ambience. It is this difficult search for a balance between line and color, which the artist works on in order to go beyond the simple representation. She undertakes a deep exploration of her subject’s inner character to give him a spiritual dimension.
When she represents a subject, whether living or only material, she never focuses on its visual representation, which is accessible to everyone, but rather its history, what she perceives.
Her feelings are what will be on the canvas, her sensibility.
Each canvas is codified by lines, colors, and sometimes by a few signs that the artist leaves here and there.
For lack of writing, Nadia Vuillaume paints her doubts, her apprehensions, her fears, her worries, but also hope and joy. Her subjects have a soul, a story and, for a time, a relation with her. Each painting speaks. One just needs to take the time to read it. In a world where listening to the other and where any sensitivity or emotion have been shut down, the artist painter Nadia Vuillaume strives to make her painting raise awareness, question, and open a dialogue. This is not about judgment but about tolerance, love, and compassion.
The variety of themes and techniques approached is a denial, as an artist, to be confined to a defined style, to a determined and irreversible technique, in which Nadia Vuillaume would not survive.
Her desire is to surpass herself and go down all the roads of pictorial representation. Nadia Vuillaume keeps moving forward and creating, like a funambulist, without any limit or barrier, oscillating between figuration and abstraction.
