Nazli Madkour

7 February, 2024 - 27 February, 2024

 

 

 

In her works, Nazli Madkour evokes an ethereal state similar to the first matter of the world in the process of formation. She does not prefer the final edition of nature, but rather the recurring vital forces that the earth passes through until it is realized, until it blossoms.  Her shapes pulsate with a personal rhythm that she seizes with her brush.  Nazli   embarks on an imaginary journey that we share with her in learning about nature. She does not view the world with the eyes of a neutral observer, but rather identifies with it, follows its course, and connects to its beginnings.  Through it, she comes to know her own self and paves the way for her pictorial vision in an attempt to discover the numerous layers underlining and forming her final painting.  She deals   with the surface of the canvas with fluency and flow as she responds to free association with determination and confidence that her imagination is replete with images. She weaves her surface with successive bursts of color and multi-effect touches, a rough touch and a delicate one, a thick color and a transparent one, and through multiple layers of color and entangled lines, she begins to formulate her own aesthetic relationships.  Finally, the shapes immerge as disintegrating flakes carrying the vibration and pulse of a vital moment of loss of materiality taking the form of visions on their way to disappearance.
