For the past few years, my art has been a reflection on the act of paying attention, on the passage of time, and on memory. My paintings vividly recreate people, places and brief glimpses of daily life as representational artworks. These sketches reveal the human landscapes through which we move and live each day – the ones we are oblivious to because we have interiorized them.

Laura Nieto Biography

My pursuit of observation has almost spontaneously prompted work along a new thematic line for me, floral still lifes, which I have designated “serene lives”. In these paintings, I evince specifically pictorial values that transmit slow-tempo visual experiences just like the “human landscapes”.

Both themes bring us closer to everyday moments and reveal the tension between respite and the wearing away of every perishable thing.

My artistic process has evolved over the years and while oil was the only technique I employed at the beginning, the pictorial process has now taken on a more central role, and I have been drawn to experiment with new mediums such as acrylics, aerosols and iridescent paints.

I conceive of all these scenes with the desire and the intention of upholding our right to contemplation and of inducing a new kind of appreciation for reality in the viewer, one in which experimentation and aesthetic pleasure are guaranteed.
