About the artist
b. 1957 in Bordeaux, France
Lives and works in Milan, Italy
Known as one of the founding members of Memphis, the celebrated 1980s Italian postmodern design group, Du Pasquier first worked as a designer of textiles, furniture and objects. Since 1986, she has subsequently been dedicating herself to painting. Du Pasquier’s attitude towards painting is perhaps most striking for the sheer joy in looking that her work proffers. A singular pleasure for the appearance of things is certainly notable in the playful compositions of daily objects that characterize her earlier still lifes.
