The work of Nuria Meseguer, arises from a desire to represent plastically what began as a game from childhood in her father's workshop, an oil landscape artist with a spatula.
She went from watercolors to oil in her Fine Arts degree (Universidad de La Laguna, Tenerife), giving way to the underwater series for which she is known, where she combines both techniques to represent the weightlessness of bodies in the immense blue abstraction of Nature, maintaining in his "environmentalist" works that balance now lost due to "development".
In the 90s she memorized the underwater bodies in her sketchbook, later facilitating the process with disposable underwater cameras and finally with digital ones from 2005, where she began to delve into the psychological facet of the work.
Since her first individual exhibition (El Almacén, Lanzarote 2002),
The water has been the backdrop where the different emotional states unfold, which vary according to the positions of the protagonists and the colors of the sea that surrounds them.
Thus, the blues, light or deep, the passionate reds and the dramatic blacks of 'Abysal' (2017), his last solo show at the SAC (Sala de Arte Contemporáneo, Tenerife), alternate in his career, a journey into internal waters where unconscious fears live, a work based on C. Jung's Shadow Theory and David R. Hawkins's on external pollution as a reflection of internal pollution.
In his exclusive dedication to art for 30 years, he has won several first prizes for painting and nine individual exhibitions in the Canary Islands, reports on his work in island, national and international art magazines such as L'Art del'Aquarelle or Geo, as well as collective exhibitions. at Gallerie Harinxma (Holland. 2015), Art3F Bourdeaux 4ª Edition (France, 2018), Present Art Space Gallery (Florence, Italy. 2012), and City Hall Montmartre (France, 2009), at Principal Sombreres Gallery (Barcelona, 2002 ), Sui Géneris Gallery (Ibiza, 2004-2005), in Madrid at the MadaPrimavesi gallery (2011) and Palacio Cibeles (2016), and in Antwerp, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Belgium, 1996).
A large-format work commissioned for the art collections of the Plattsburgh State Art Museum, New York will soon be exhibited.
He currently works mostly commissioned with underwater portraits, in addition to small-format works and the investigation of the process of the work itself.
