Nadine Hardy likes to draw a parallel between her life, which can be summarised as a brief transition, and the production of her successive artworks. She aims to strike and move her audience whilst creating beauty. This compulsive, obsessive and repetitive search ends in a conversation in the present moment that is destined to disappear.
The expression in her paintings then appears autonomously.
With a master’s degree in history, and experience in both art and art history, Nadine Hardy is now a full-time painter. Every experience adds a new dimension to her paintings which contain an echo of her exposure to art.
One common characteristic is linearity. Without pigeonholing herself, Nadine Hardy has turned to abstract art as a means of expression. Inspired by the world around her, the painter’s artistic approach can be summed up in the explanation that “the artist paints and the observer creates.”
Hardy works with acrylic on wood using a plastic card or brush. The bright, powerful colour makes her work easier to understand, read, translate and unpack. It stands as a link and point of reference between what is seen and what is felt through her personal experience, cultural roots and environment.
The aim is neither to guide emotions nor to suggest but instead to explore the feelings that drive her and lead to creation. For this reason, she is greatly inspired by abstract painting and the use of acrylic paint, which help provide a language for the creative process. This language is visual, represented by shapes, colours and lines. It is a never-ending transition between technique and the unsaid. A contraction of reality or an intellectual and artistic connection.
