artist biography

Nathlie Provosty (b. 1981) studied painting and art history at Maryland Institute College of Art and the University of Pennsylvania. The year between her education she lived in India as a Fullbright fellow. Provosty’s work has been exhibited at Nathalie Karg Gallery (New York), A Palazzo Gallery (Brescia), Jablonka Maruani Mercier Gallery Project Space (Knokke), Greene Exhibitions (Los Angeles), Stefan Lundgren Gallery (Mallorca), Berthold Pott (Cologne) and others. Her paintings are included in the collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Colby Museum of Art (Waterville), the Farnsworth Museum (Rockland) and the Portland Museum of Art. Provosty’s oeuvre explores paradox with particular attention to formal nuance. Known for highly sensual, abstract oil paintings that appear to be word forms, body fragments, or unidentifiable shapes, their ambiguities are grounded by an involved relationship to the materiality of paint and an investigation of colour.
