Nina Chanel Abney
Combining representation and abstraction, Nina Chanel Abney’s paintings capture the frenetic pace of contemporary culture. Broaching subjects as diverse as race, celebrity, religion, politics, sex, and art history, her works eschew linear storytelling in lieu of disjointed narratives. Abney’s use of color and unapologetic scale, her distinctively bold style harnesses the flux and simultaneity that has come to define life in the 21st century. Abney (b.1982, Illinois) lives and works in New York, New York.
