The core of Iris Nadel's work is the tension created between the small and square format, which seemingly frames and moderates the intensity of emotion, and the storm of soul that unfolds in her paintings.

The images in her works are drawn from the imagination and are not the outcome of external observation. They direct to an internal, charged and associative world, laden with ambivalent and particularly enigmatic feelings, intertwined with anxiety, distress and doubt. Sometimes it seems that we are watching the contents of an unresolved dream, transformed from the unconscious onto the canvas and the paper.

Despite its small dimensions and its chamber atmosphere, Nadel's painting does not make things easier for the viewer. It has a disturbing tone that gives no rest: it is an authentic painting devoid of experience to impress the viewer
