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 spacial shifts.
Her first solo exhibition in New York opened in 2012 at 1:1, an experimental artist-run gallery in the East Village. She has since exhibited work nationally and internationally including the Risorgimento Museum in Turin, Italy (2018-19) and Nathalie Karg Gallery in New York (2018, 2016), among others. Group exhibitions include Peter Freeman in New York (2019); Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway (2018); Colby Museum of Art, ME, curated by Alex Katz (2017); and Washington University Museum, DC (2017). Provosty’s work is currently on display at the American Academy of Arts and Letters as part of the 2020 Art and Purchase Awards exhibition.
