“The idea of producing a new artbook came three months ago when I realized that I made more than 200 illustrations during quarantine.
It all started a few months after we were all shut down and when I began “Presence” series. A year later, looking at them, it made sense to gathered some and share a part of this journey.
As a manifesto of my mental state of mind - these illustrations were created during a year of quarantine. They represent a state of Presence, A Presence to oneself, as well as to one's environment allowing self-observation.
The mind can thus flourish without constraint, leaving room for creativity, intuition, concentration.
In all of these drawings, the hope is to convey something about energy. Something about seeds that are germinating...
It is an invitation to commune with yourself, a lonely, experimental voyage throughout the consciousness, somewhere in between.”
« With a primary palette, the work of Nicolas Farade aims to create interdimensional spaces. A place where space-time is in motion. Curves meet lines, expand and intersect. Nicolas then invites us to inner exploration, towards an infinite race »
