Edie Nadelhaft

Edie Nadelhaft

Edie Nadelhaft is a Manhattan-based contemporary artist known for her bold, visceral oil paintings and slick, technology-inspired sculpture. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the US at galleries and art fairs including Texas Contemporary (Houston, TX 2013), CONTEXT art miami (Miami, FL 2012), Woodward Gallery (NYC 2013) and Family Business (NYC 2012), and abroad in China, Taiwan and Basel, Switzerland. Upcoming exhibitions include Face-to-Face: Wall to Wall, at Yellowstone Art Museum (Billings, MT 2014) and Water, Water... Kianga Ellis Projects (NYC Fall 2013). Drawing inspiration from contemporary hyper-realism, 20th century abstraction, 1960’s minimalist sculpture and the industrial design trend known as "cuddle-tech", Nadelhaft’s deeply sensual works address the space between physical and psychological presence, a uniquely human experience firmly ensconced in the glossy sheen of an increasingly digital culture.

“My work is an exploration of the physical world and the human experience, and the impact of digital culture on perception. I am interested in scale, color systems and the strange perspectives offered by (what has lately become ubiquitous) digital imaging technology.”
