Nathlie Provosty

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). Works are currently on view at SFMoMA’s Open Ended: Painting and Sculpture 1900 to Now.

The artist’s frequent use of dark colors stems from an interest in the peripheral territories of visual perception. Taking this source one step further, she describes the paintings […]
