James Cohan is pleased to present Enter the Realm, an exhibition of new work by Naudline Pierre, on view from May 14 through June 18. This expansive presentation, which extends across the gallery’s 48 and 52 Walker Street spaces, includes paintings, drawings, and sculptures. This is Pierre's first solo exhibition with James Cohan. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, May 14, from 10-4 PM.
In Enter the Realm, Pierre conceives of an alternate universe populated with jewel-toned celestial figures that dance, writhe, and soar across her fantastical scenes. Brilliant and impactful color continues to illuminate this parallel world, forging links between Pierre’s various media and her recurring cast of characters. The works on view are an exquisite and extensive tale of becoming, shaped by an intensely cultivated internal fantasy life and the acknowledgment that change and metamorphosis, however uncomfortable they may be, are often necessary to reach new heights.
