A member of the Memphis Group—founded in 1981 and known for postmodern design and architecture—Nathalie de Pasquier discovered in 1987 that her true calling wasn’t design but fine art. She abruptly left the movement. From producing patterns and shapes, she moved to painting them as still lifes. Going further into abstraction, Pasquier began exploring relationships between surfaces and space, between two and three dimensional forms. The paintings here are oil on canvas. —E.C.
