Nathalie Du Pasquier is working on a rug with BravinLee. Check back for details soon
Du Pasquier is a founding member of the Milan-based design group Memphis, which designed furniture using bold colors and asymmetrical shapes during the 1980s. This aesthetic is still present in her current practice, as colorful abstract constructions are interspersed in the gallery alongside bright paintings depicting domestic housewares, such as cups and bottles. These “wooden compositions” or sculptural constructions she creates, act as “models” for her paintings. The presentation of her designs both in 3-D and in 2-D create a dizzying effect for the viewer that is at once playful and visually stimulating.
