Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Nadine Baurin was born in 1973. The granddaughter of artist Rita Mulhall, Nadine spent her childhood learning to draw and soon developed a passion for art.
In 1991 Nadine passed the Cambridge 'O' Levels Art with Distinction and a year later relocated to the U.S. where she received her B.A. in Fine Art from Illinois' Principia College. She currently lives California, creating art in both Santa Cruz and San Diego.
Nadine has studied painting with nationally and internationally recognized artists including Duncan Martin, David Coughtry, Glenn Felch, and with fellow Argentine artist Eduardo Cervera.
Nadine's paintings are greatly inspired by her travels throughout the U.S., Latin America and Europe where she's had periods of independent study to further her art training. She describes her work as minimal representational, letting her paintings come to light in an intuitive manner. "After applying paint to my canvas" she states "I wait and let the images emerge. Like the child who carves images from clouds, I step away from the literal and attempt to paint what I perceive and feel."
With honest commitment, Nadine engages the viewer through confident brushstrokes that are emotionally charged with vivid resonance and freedom. In her work she presents a juxtaposition of randomness and precision; boldness and subtlety, achieved through unreserved gesture and emotion.
Juxtaposed against the transitory shapes embedded within her paintings, Baurin’s oeuvre denotes an unequivocal spontaneity characterized by the uninhibited application of paint to canvas, creating images that elicit confidence, energy and passion.
Nadine Baurin’s artworks are on display in private collections nationally and also abroad, as far as Argentina, France and Australia.
