Nathalie Du Pasquier - Artists - Kerlin Gallery

Influenced by the language of classicism, Nathalie Du Pasquier’s paintings splice together simplified still-life compositions, architectural plans, industrial drawings, and playful fragments of text with boldly simplified blocks of colour. New objects constantly enrich Du Pasquier’s imaginary and symbolic world and she follows particular, poetic paths to construct and compose forms, sculpt space, and render representation anew – as well as using her own archive as raw material to be reshaped. Exploring the links between objects, geometry, representation of space, and psychic life, Du Pasquier’s paintings often expand into clustered arrangements or onto the surrounding walls, taking a fluid and porous approach to traditional distinctions between ‘fine’ and ‘decorative’ arts. Intrigued by the relationship between objects and the spaces in which they are installed, Nathalie Du Pasquier’s work has manifested in paintings, sculptures, designs, patterns, constructions, carpets, books, and ceramics—constantly acting between the representational and non-representational, the tangible and intangible, reality and imagination, and two- and three-dimensional forms.

 

Nathalie Du Pasquier lives and works in Milan.
