Vazquez, Natascha

Natascha Vazquez (b. 1990, Spain) is an abstract painter whose work focuses on energetic interactions between biomorphic forms. She highlights these relationships in a sculptural way, creating a sense of 3-dimensionality through layered surfaces using mixed media. There is a high-energy interplay of forms that allude to a kind of movement, contradictory to painting which is completely flat. The viewer is left contemplating the construction of the work, questioning where it might have started and ended, and its relationship with our surroundings. Vazquez draws inspiration from biology - forms in her work often imitate our own bodies and the organic world in which we live. Vazquez has an MFA in Painting from The Savannah College of Art and Design and a BFA in Painting from Rollins College, Florida. She has exhibited her work in both solo and group exhibitions and fairs in The Bahamas, France and The United States. Her work is a part of various collections, including The Savannah College of Art and Design Permanent Collection, The Dawn Davies Collection and The D’Aguilar Art Foundation. Vazquez is presently the Curator at The Current Studio and Gallery in Nassau, The Bahamas.
