French artist Nadège Druzkowksi creates landscape paintings that plunge observers into a dreamlike world. Drawing inspiration from literature and film, Nadège explores concepts of time, memory and absence, creating unusual yet harmonious visual narratives to be adored and explored.
At once suspenseful and alluring, Nadège’s paintings are imbued with a certain ghostliness. Inspired by the French novelist Marcel Proust who staunchly upheld the power of art to transport observers out of time, Nadège’s figurative canvases are charged with atmosphere and mystery, often composed from multiple angles for multiple perspectives. Acrylics such as I was left to wander the earth alone and My dreams are like your waking hours present rich, shadowy colour palettes, subdued light and unusual textures enhanced by using leaves and branches instead of paintbrushes.
Nadège’s dark and enigmatic works have been exhibited internationally in solo and group shows in France, Iceland and the UK. The artist currently lives and works in Lyon, France.
