Building landscapes from overlapping individual shapes and thin layers of paint, Nadia Cascini seeks to transport viewers to an imaginative, mysterious world. Capturing the physical qualities and expressive associations of cityscapes, Cascini recreates the impalpable and invisible through an oblique lens. Favoring Italian landscapes, Cascini paints in a style rooted both in Cubism and Italian Futurism, echoing the spatial dynamism found in paintings by artists like Georges Braque and Carlo Carrà. The overall effect is one of a dreamscape, imaginative yet grounded in reality. Her landscapes appear to vibrate, quiver, and radiate light as an expression of the energy within her scenes. Her precise brushstrokes and superimposed veils of color stand as individual expressions, cohering to transfigure existing landscapes and position light as a vehicle for thought and embodiment of a creative spirit.
