    Nathalie du Pasquier: Paintings

Bright, playful paintings from the extra-special Nathalie du Pasquier

Posted by Rob Alderson,

It always pays dividends to check in with a creative as versatile as Nathalie du Pasquier. You get a sense of the breadth of her skills with a quick glance across the top of the French-born, Milan-based artist’s website, where the headings “Paintings,” “Design,” “Constructions” and “Drawings” reflect the diversity of her practice. But with painting her main focus for a quarter of a century now, it makes sense that this is where her most interesting new work can be found.The pictures she’s done this year feature both recognisable household clutter or more abstract works that still bring to mind domesticity with playful, colourful juxtapositions. It’s hard to put your finger on just what makes these so pleasing to look at, but in their bright, calming way they stand out even amid her own strong portfolio as something special.
