Nuria Román

She has lived and worked in Holland (1984) and the United States (Los Angeles 1994-1997). Since 1997 she lives in Menorca, Balearic Islands, where she develops a work that combines a wide range of expression techniques: painting, ceramics, stone, iron sculpture and art installations using different materials and formats.

Since her arrival on the island, Román's work has explored themes such as the relationship between women and the world; the search for new solutions to the problems of the world; the north-south relationship; the land as a hosting space and as a broken space; the need to build bridges and to "sew the earth together".
