« The gallery is transformed into a display of giant color chart. Nicole Hassler exhibits her latest paintings with colors and textures of eye shadow. As a visual artist, Nicole Hassler is a painter and part of a radical painting movement. She is interested in the identity of color in its logic, in appearance, artifice and the realm of illusion. She creates works that question the unstable boundaries between what is considered art and what is not. Her works bear witness to the history and ideas of contemporary art, to consumerism and industry. The colors used for her paintings are at the forefront of technology and are part of scientific research constantly renewed since they apply directly to the skin. For this exhibition, Nicole Hassler is inspired by the colors of eye shadow that cosmetics industry scientists have created and takes up the challenge of reproducing them. Her works are regularly exhibited, mainly in Europe, France, Switzerland, Germany and also in the United States. Nicole Hassler lives and works in France and Switzerland. » Denis Simon, 2019
