Biography

Conchita Bardají

Spanish artist Conchita Bardají was born in the Aragonese Pyrenees, where she developed an intimate connection with nature that she translates through realist pencil drawings.
 

"The intimate dialogue with Nature is a way to approach the divine, and I want to paint and draw it, in an effort to make it mine through my pencils and my brushes," Bardají says. "My love for her makes me represent her as she is, wanting to reproduce all her splendor.  The shape of the trees seems to me the maximum expression of beauty.  I think that my way of drawing and painting can convey that beauty, looking at it in a romantic way, and drawing it in an almost baroque way. But without a doubt my intention is that it be in a contemporary way."

"My way of seeing Nature is closer to the abstract than to the concrete: there are no references to concrete places, I am interested in Nature itself. Even the frames I choose are abstract, there is no perspective, there is no "place", there is no scene. I think it is an attempt to decontextualize the "where", I am not interested in where I have taken that image, I just want the beauty and essence of that piece of Nature. When I walk among the trees, I find myself contemplating a chaotic infinity, but my gaze selects, and an order emerges. My mind wants to order the chaos and offer it as a cure for the human soul."
