This two-volume publication consists of an artist's book by Nathalie Du Pasquier with drawings, photographs, and reproductions of her paintings and a publication with photographic portraits of her works from the past decades by Delfino Sisto Legnani.
Nathalie du Pasquier was one of the founding members of Memphis, the groundbreaking Milanese design and architecture collective. During her time with the group she designed patterns for textiles and carpets as well as objects and furniture. Since 1987, however, her main focus and passion has been painting. The title of this publication describes the main focus of her work: the still life. Her distinct influences are visible here: travels to Africa
, the ornamentation of the Wiener Werkstätte, the art of Le Corbusier
and Amédée Ozenfant, and Novecento painting by Giorgio de Chirico and Giorgio Morandi.
Published following the eponymous exhibition, Kunsthalle Wien, from July 15 to November 13, 2016.
