Nathlie Provosty (b. 1981, Cincinnati, Ohio) is a New York City-based visual artist whose work is engaged with materiality and perception. Provosty uses subtle, highly tactile qualities of oil paint that oscillate visually and conceptually according to the painting’s multi-referential imagery, physical interaction with light & the environment, and continuous spatial shifts.


In 2023, she will be the subject of a solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Milan, Italy. Her first one-person exhibition in New York opened in 2012 at 1:1, an experimental artist-run gallery in the East Village. She has since exhibited nationally and internationally including most recently at Nathalie Karg Gallery in New York (2022) and A Palazzo Gallery, Italy (2020), among others. Group exhibitions include the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (2020); SFMoMA (2019); Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway (2018); Colby Museum of Art, ME, curated by Alex Katz (2017); Washington University Museum, DC (2017); and the American Academy of Arts and Letters as part of the Art and Purchase Awards exhibition (2020).
