The Coup de Crayon collection offers the artists in the fields of painting, drawing or collage a “carte blanche” to imagine a series as a book. “Andata Ritorno” is the second volume of the collection.
Nathalie Du Pasquier made the 50 drawings featured in Andata Ritorno in a short time-frame during summer 2018. This book is a captivating journey between reality and the imaginary as Du Pasquier presents everyday objects as transient sculptures next to intriguing geometric shapes that together create colourful and vibrant layouts.
Nathalie Du Pasquier was born in Bordeaux, France in 1957. She moves to Milan in 1979 and becomes one of the founding members of the Memphis Group. During those years, she designed numerous “decorated surfaces”: textiles, carpets, objects, furniture and patterns for other designers. Since 1987, her main focus and passion has been painting.
Regardless of format or purpose, drawing has always been at the heart of Nathalie Du Pasquier’s artistic process. Chose Commune, a french publishing house dedicated to photography, has offered her to conceive one of the first volume of their new “Coup de Crayon” collection, centered on drawing. Entitled Andata-Ritorno, this monography showcases a series of drawings made during the summer of 2018: displayed as diptychs, these pencil-drawn sketches form roundtrips between abstract constructions and everyday objects, between the artist’s mental projections and the observations of her surroundings, essence and periphery.
