If from the first glance, by her style, the work of Nadia Merzoug suggests the influences of abstract expressionists, a second look, makes it possible to measure to what extent the artist knew how to make his own, during his learning and his studies, The techniques so special to this movement.
At the crossroads of the abstract and figurative composition, the canvases of Nadia Merzoug demonstrate just as strongly, the heritage of Hans Hofmann and her empirical theory of color, as its control of colorful strata, this field structure of artists Colorfield Painting movement such as Clyfford Still and Mark Rothko.
But the quality and originality of Nadia Merzoug's paintings are only revealed on the third look, that of women. The genesis of the artist's work is here. In this handful of women painters of this movement, who fought to take their place in an artistic world largely dominated by men. As with Helen Frankenthaler and his infinite shades of colors, in the lively gestures and the power of the canvases of Joan Mitchell, in the torments of those of Ethel Schwabacher, or those of Anita de Caro.
Here, beyond the gaze on the pictorial work, the real message of Nadia Merzoug: the politician, that of the place of the woman artist in our society. A militant message for more representativeness, visibility and equality. Nadia Merzoug, by her synthesis of the best of abstract expressionists, men and women, therefore presents in her paintings a strong and contemporary message to anyone aspiring to autonomy, freedom and independence.
His work is today awarded numerous exhibitions and commitments in Switzerland. In 2017, a New York gallery welcomed its first personal exhibition in the very heart of the district where women painters representing this artistic movement lived, renewing their message that Nadia Merzoug made his own with conviction and originality.
