Viguier Nadia


Location: France

One sees clearly only with the heart, the essential is invisible to the eyes. (Antoine de St. Exupéry)

Czech-born, initially self-taught, I started with the portrait at the age of 15 years. Life was my Academy. I live between Prague and Paris where I attended several workshops.The painters I admire : Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buoenarotti, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun, Turner, Courbet, Eugène Boudinn, Lhermitte. And especially the Impressionists : Manet, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Bazille, Caillebotte, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Sisley, Pissarro, Berthe Morizot as well Mary Cassat. Eugène Carrière’s chiaroscuro paintings intriguing.
Nature is my main inspiration. In my paintings, I express what I can not say with words.
Nadia Viguier and mystery.
Some works of Nadia Viguier give birth to allowing access not at her most intimate secret but the most intimate secret. It is to what the artist unkowinglly will. There is (and despite the idea of maternity) something about the "Carmelite" because loneliness calls for violent communion.

The Artist - by sudden abstraction of reality - looking for a form to the shape of everything she brings out even thought it may seem strange since nothing in her is of the order of the simple demonstration of evidence. Emerges a form of enjoyment of the order of a pagan spirituality. A huge tide or a geyser springs from the earth. This is due to the fire (for color) and the telluric. This is no longer satisfied the kingdom of shadows.

The artist goes currents, sometimes stairs of unknown where they lead. How to overcome this wave or this ascent? Somehow the artist releases us from the ground. We slip into such images, we become accomplices "innocent" (or not).

Remain traces, wastelands. The moon or the sun takes us away from the slumber. Light opens the literary sense inexpressible. A powerful blast through space
