MELODIE PROVENZANO is inspired by objects, the way they look, and the emotions that they suggest. Each balanced still-life world that this artist builds, and then renders, all resonate with something true inside of her. Little toy apples suggest a traditional still-life, a miniature plaster head suggests classical art history, and the toy microphone is an instrument to project meaning and expression louder for everyone to hear. Her meticulous drawings and paintings create mock dramas that build narrative momentum when the audience assigns meaning to their relationships. Provenzano is represented by Lions Wier Gallery and has exhibited in numerous national group shows and art fairs. Her talent has been commissioned by Chanel, DKNY, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, and for various album covers. She was born in Hudson, NY and currently lives and works in New York.
1996 B.F.A. Parsons School of Design
