The playful colour combinations in this piece is a beautiful balance to its thoughtful patterned composition. I love the lively contrast it brings. Due to the intricate handmade technique of Nadège’s work, this piece is deserving of a place where people come together such as a dining or living room, where it would no doubt spark conversation thanks to its skilled composition. I envisage it in a colour-filled room, alongside other vibrant statement pieces and furniture.
Nadège’s intricate artwork would make a statement in a lounge room or living space. A textured neutral-coloured armchair and objects with accents of cobalt and chartreuse would bring this space together.
Like a living piece of music, this bold combination of colour and graphic form creates the illusion of pulsating movement. Nadège skilfully manipulates this hand-formed technique to an almost digital precision. To best display this piece, I would hang it in a grand living room with a deep neutral tone on the walls as part of a salon hang. Alongside oil realism photography and pencil drawings, the precision and artistry of this work would shine.
