Naudline Pierre Biography
Naudline Pierre creates paintings that serve as portals into a mysterious world. Pierre’s works are informed by religious narratives from her upbringing, and are laced with spiritual references and personal mythology.
The central subject of her paintings serves as an alter-ego, an unearthly representation rendered in a spectrum of colors. 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.
Naudline Pierre (b. 1989, Leomister, MA), currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She holds an MFA from the New York Academy of Art and a BFA from Andrews University. She was the recent recipient of the Terra Foundation for American Art residency in Giverny, France, and the Estée Lauder Merit Award. Her work has been included in group shows in New York City, Los Angeles, London, and a 2017 solo show at Thierry Goldberg Gallery, New York City.
