Discover Emerging Artist Melodie Provenzano
New York based artist Melodie Provenzano is inspired by objects; the way they look and the emotions that they suggest. Still life's are composed with figurines and various items, like drinking glasses, golf balls, ribbons, and bows. The final arrangement is a meticulously rendered composition that allows a brief glimpse into the artist's personal world. Using graphite and gouache to create these mock dramas, with accents of color and gold leaf to suggest a narrative momentum, Provenzano allows the audience to assign their own meaning to the works. The works are filled with images of love and misfortune, artificiality and intimacy, and failure and realization. The drawings are affectionately constructed but within these delicate works are strong recognitions about our own notions of power and fragility.
