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 venues including CONTEXT art Miami 2012, RushARTS and Family Business in New York, and abroad in China, Taiwan and Basel, Switzerland. Drawing inspiration from contemporary hyper-realism, 20th century abstraction, 1960’s minimalist sculpture and the industrial design fad known colloquially as Cuddletech, 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 investigation of the natural world and the human presence, by which I mean how the human animal experiences that world as opposed to the impact we have upon it.”
