ALGINET, 1946 Nydia Lozano
With his work he tries to transcend the appearance of everything that is alive: the skin, the plants, the fabrics, the light on the wall, the cadence of a hand on the chest …
His initial distant, essential and immobile landscapes gave way to the feminine figure, which is today the center of his work.
Nydia Lozano felt from a very young age, to her town of Alginet, the inclination to capture on paper her impressions of the countryside and the towns of Valencia.
His church towers and family faces interested Jose Espert, the first person to tell him what painting was and probably the only one who could talk to him about painters like Sargent in the early sixties. He saw that Nydia’s path was already drawn and helped her follow him.
The first important step was to enroll in the Superior School of Fine Arts of San Carlos de Valencia in 1965. During these five courses he exhibited for the first time, enjoyed a scholarship in Rome and several awards confirmed his vocation; and, between the prosaic classes and the sun of the old cloister of the School, she knew who her husband is, the painter Leopoldo Sánchez.
They both moved to Barcelona, at a time when Nydia’s paintings suggested a reality, between the abstract and the dreamed, of distant, essential, immobile landscapes. But soon the mute talk of his landscapes protected with his words the feminine figure, which is today the center of his work. A work in which he tries to transcend the appearance of everything that is alive: the skin, the plants, the fabrics, the light on the wall, the cadence of a hand on the chest. But without being noticed, without a line to mark the change, because the look walks with the order and peace that Nydia wants to life.
