Catalogue Note

“I’m trying to work with subjects that are not original. Subjects that have been, and still are, painted all the time. Like a portrait, or a cat. What fascinates me about these topics is their capacity to regenerate themselves at any period of history, and still be relevant to us. I also believe some subjects are always painted because they are an infinite source of meaning and inspiration” (Nicolas Party cited in: Federica Tattoli, 'Talking with the Swiss painter Nicolas Party', Fruit of the Forest, December 2016, online).
