About Nadia Rapti

"I am interested in combining representational versus abstract, precise versus gestural, deliberate and considered versus accidental, painted shapes and shadows versus sketchy lines. I like using pallet knives and building up on the canvas the texture of my painting as well as scraping part of it, leaving behind marks of the process. I try to stop working on a painting before this is finished, so the viewer will be urged to realize and feel the wholeness of it."
