After years of working as a representational painter, Nubia began to experiment intuitively with acrylics. She brings a fresh vision of the world through her abstracted imagery and layered use of the medium. Nubia uses the power and universality of color to communicate with the viewer through her spontaneous creative energy flow. She begins her abstract process by layering color through direct painting on canvas. Small touches left alone, unexpected images, and color combinations emerge, beginning a relationship with the artist’s psyche and emotions.
Her paintings contract and expand, hum and vibrate with the rhythms of her world. Nubia is an inventive colorist, using the hues of her palette to evoke an emotional response from the viewer who is drawn to explore implied imagery in fields of color. These unexpected points of reference lead to narratives invented by the viewer.
