For the birth of new painting Nadia uses one important chemical formula. Mixing three elements together: Love, Inspiration and Colour.
She perceives Art as the reflection of Love translated into in a tangible form.
“Love is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. “
Inspiration is always already here. You just have to make yourself be able to receive it with mind and hands wide open. And you are not in command, you are the servant, the messenger.
"Inspiration as a gust of passionate and undefinable desires- is a state of mind accessible to everyone."( M.V.Vrubel 1856-1910).
Colour is a person with a changeable nature. Light and shadow give to colour mood and form the shape. Sometimes the form is misty and elusive or insidious and capricious,or sometimes serious and proud, or unexplained and not logical.
"Why did I hesitate to put all the glory of the sun on my canvas? "(Paul Cauguin 1848-1903)
