Nathalie Regard

Design by: Alfredo Martinez

Nathalie Regard was born 1969 in Madrid and raised in Chile. Arriving to Mexico in 1992, she develops a self-taught carrier as visual artist before she moved to Paris, in 1998 where she developed a series of large-format paintings of industrial architecture, being awarded the Ateliers de la Ville de Paris (2002-2008) CNAP.

During the Master of Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art, graduate in Scotland (2005), she began the monumental-scale painting project (Big Scanning) including the artist's book publication (Void Painting: 1>250.000). Since 2007, the publication has been presented internationally in several out doors sites ranging from institutions to independent interventions. Void Painting: 1>250:000 received several grants and was the subject of various international publications.

Parallel to her practice in visual art, Nathalie transcribes her dreams every day since 1996. She has converted her evolved practice from the field of representation to an increasingly sedimentary approach to the image converted into a code. Her phenomenological reflection has always been accompanied by a parallel work of observation and transcription of her dreams. The daily exercise of the transcription of dreams that Nathalie has exercised, has led her to memorize them in an increasingly precise way, This search leads to the neurophysiology of sleep, along with Roberto Toro and Guillaume Dumas in 2011, dreamsessions.org is a collective that develops an experimental protocol to monitor Nathalie's dream, combining literature, performance, visual art and cognitive science.

Based in Mexico City, Nathalie founded Lyrica Artists Workshops in 2016.
