About

André Nadal masters optic art by creating incredibly precise monochromic works composed of floating geometric shapes, directly inspired by his industrial design background.

His black backgrounds could be artworks in themselves: with a brush and deep black oil paint, André Nadal creates alterations on the canvas resulting in intense patterns simply shaped by light and shadow. Then with an extremely precise gesture, the artist crosses, weaves and breaks the surface of the canvas to obtain complex matrices and reveal overlapping layers of painting. Sometimes an artistic drift might appear as an accident to stimulate further the regular geometry of the pattern just revealed.

Through his fascinating monochromic work, André Nadal offers us an in-depth journey into a world of void and shadow and carries us into a soothing and stimulating contemplation. In his black and white infinite nuances and patterns, the artist pushes the boundaries further to reach a different dimension. 

“Monochrome allows me to come to contradiction: from the simplicity provided by one colour to compare with a full palette, an intense density must arise – this is where eventually the contradiction happens...”
