"Observers and art commentators constantly highlight the technique of this artist native of Moldavia. The exclusive use of ink with its implication of vulnerability for the artist in the face of error is a fact that seduces and fascinates by its fatal character. The ink does not tolerate any repentance and, on such substantial masses of work, imposes, to complete a work, absolute self-control able to subjugate the imaginary. But what makes the strength of Nina Tescar is her visual universe unique and irremediably gripping. Steeped in old Flemish schools, she deploys on her assemblages of paper a universe where metamorphosis and annihilation intertwine without the possibility of being dissociated in an inexorable cycle. There is something strangely mythological in her work, reactivating the oldest memories buried in the memory of man, of time when some demiurge worked without restraint in the face of the world, and where the most divine wonders rubbed shoulders with the most frightening terrors."
Translated from a French article by Thibaud Josset (Univers des Arts)
Nina Tescar explains her series "The Beginning"
Everybody wondered how this world began
I have also asked myself this question, which unfortunately has remained unanswered until now. Unsurprisingly, scientists around the world have not been able to answer it. Everyone talks about four elements.
The World of Mineralogy and Fossils inspired me for this series is that I came across it by chance thanks to my companion Michel Lavergne. He discovered the existence of mineralogy for me. We went to excavations in different countries, it’s surprisingly interesting, especially when you find stones or fossils themselves, which are already millions or even more years old. At mineralogy exhibitions I was fascinated by minerals, created by nature, but also by fossils of various animals and plants. I thought how strange it is, they are no longer there and there is still a trace of them, and what will be left after us?
A discovery for me: The Nautilus
But the discovery for me was that some of them still live to this day. I won’t list everyone, my favourite is the Nautilus. I managed to see one of these animals in the Barcelona Oceanarium. This amazing creature has managed to survive for so long, about 450 million years, almost unchanged. One of the surviving crustaceans from the age of the dinosaurs: Living Fossil. Nautilus is also a symbol of inner beauty in nature. The shell is one of the famous natural objects that synchronise the golden number – the PHI number.
Its uniqueness is found in all organic structures. I am attracted by the outer beauty of things and their complexities, not by mathematical and geometrical calculations. I am more interested in life as development and change, as beginning and end. In my works, Nautilus symbolises a window into the past and also water, water being one of the elements in the creation of the world.
