SALT - A solo exhibition by Nuria Maria

About this event

Salt is Dutch artist Nuria Maria’s first solo show in the UK, featuring acrylic paintings on linen and canvas. Maria composed these paintings during a three-month stay in Calogne, on the Costa Brava in Catalonia. The show’s resulting warm palette of moss green, burnt pink, ochre red, hazy turquoise, earthy terracotta, and creamy whites is informed by the landscape she was surrounded by. “Costa Brava has such a strong palette,” she says. “The rocks are red, the countryside is dark green, and the sea is a deep blue. All the colours near the coast – the boats and houses – are all faded by the salt in the sea. This palette really affected my paintings. I also listened a lot to Estonian composer Arvo Pärt – his dark cello-piano pieces made such a strong contrast with the sunny, light atmosphere.”
