About

The paintings of Romanian-born artist, Iulia Nistor allude to the seemingly hidden and undefined, ultimately having as subject the method of their making. She follows a tenaciously developed procedure that consists of overlapping various layers of paint and repeatedly removing them.

For the artist, regress results from this method of informing and discharging which creates the sensual field. Her painting process is a process of excavation –subtracting from the image either by taking away parts of the still wet color with paper pressings or if in a dry state, sanding or scrapping it off. As a result, the leftover fragments of multiple layers sediment and forge a ground from which signifying gestures and forms emerge.

Iulia Nistor (1985, Bucharest) lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Her solo exhibitions include: Canary in a coal mine, Plan B, Berlin (2017); Before Interpretation, Galeria Electroputere, Craiova (2015); .../.../..., Strabag Kunstforum, Vienna (2015); (i)... (ii)... (iii)... (iv)..., Aiurart Contemporary Art Space,Bucharest (2014).
