Nadéne Grey was born in Juneau, Alaska in 1979. She left Alaska to travel and later earn her BFA in sculpture from the California College of Arts. After graduation she moved to New York where she received her MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art. Grey’s paintings are technically varied, layering representational passages with abstract stains of color and expressive brushstrokes. They draw on a wealth of themes such as trauma, family, inequality, sexuality and the sublime. Her solo and group exhibitions include shows at the Oliver Center in San Francisco, Sergeants’ Daughters Gallery in New York, Bridge Art Fair in Miami and Sloan Fine Art Gallery in New York. Her paintings are held in numerous private collections in the US and abroad. She recently received the Vice Versa residency awarding her two months painting in India. Nadéne Grey currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
