Based in Santiago, Chile, Nadra Jacob grew up in a family company engaged in textile which had an impact on her artistic practice, fostering a distinct taste in her aesthetics, designs and color choices. Whereas Jacob specializes in painting, she is always experimenting different mediums including Chinese ink and pastel, and more recently integrating encaustic and cyanotype in her work. Rendered in oil, paper and embroidery, these compositions move between abstraction and figuration. Their layered imagery is expressive of Jacob's life long interest in the power of numbers as a foundation of everything that exists in the Universe, and an incessant quest for experimentation.
Represented by Gabriel Fine Arts gallery (London) and the virtual platform MSB Art Curators, she has participated in various group exhibitions and art fairs internationally. In 2022, her works where exhibited at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in Chelsea, New York.
