Nathlie Provosty (MFA '07) in Exhibit at Gallery Satori through August 16

Nathlie Provosty, Untitled 1 and Untitled 2, 2009

Nathlie Provosty (MFA '07) is exhibiting ink drawings in a group show at Gallery Satori. The show is titled Fresh Asphalt and features thirteen artists. "Like freshly poured steaming asphalt in the middle of a hot and sticky summer the artworks in the show all share a rich dark black element. However in contrast to this dark facade they put forth a cool crisp presence that breathes slowly and meditatively.

"Beginning with material realism, the works in this exhibition deal with the transformation of our notions of the familiar. Some portray organic forms that mysteriously emerge out of darkness while others introduce minimalist shapes that are stripped of all evocative elements except their own luminous presence. From an organic gestural large-scale charcoal drawing to shiny computer manipulated nightscapes of Shanghai and Tokyo, the show presents a wide array of media including Sintra and melamine paintings, ceramic automobiles and mixed media leather sculptures."

Exhibition Dates: July 8 - August 16, 2009
