Nadia Naveau’s figures, layered upon each other dynamically remind us of Baroque sculpture. However, by including contemporary elements in het compositions, as well as in her control of the material itself, whether clay, wood or rubber, she transcends the style to which she refers. The casual and fragmented appearance of the sculptures is the result of an organic process. Nevertheless, this wildly grown mass is a consequence of a well orchestrated chaos.
Naveau’s work is characterized by an unconcerned eclecticism and yet a subdued purity. The energy with which the artist tackles her work manifests itself into visual delight.
