Naudline Pierre’s Ghostly Narratives

by Andy SmithPosted on

Naudline Pierre‘s paintings offer a look into both a broader spiritual plane and her own “personal mythology.” The paintings, intimate and otherworldly, explore the vibrant and unseen. The artist’s ghostly oil paintings has been shown in New York City, Los Angeles, London, and beyond, and she is a a recipient of the Terra Foundation for American Art residency.

“The central subject of her paintings serves as an alter-ego, an unearthly representation rendered in a spectrum of colors,” the gallery Shulamit Nazarian says. “As the artist has stated about her work, she is ‘acknowledging the incredible history contained with my body and transferring it to a visual language co-opted from the dominant Western art historical canon.’ Caught between the beautiful and the haunting, the paintings depict intimate, otherworldly scenes in which characters find themselves in moments of embrace, gaining protection and empowerment through touch, as they explore the complexities of their existence.”
