Born in 1989 in Leominster, Massachusetts, and a resident of Brooklyn, Naudline Pierre reinterprets Western artistic tradition, especially religious scenes present since the Renaissance, with a contemporary style full of color and fantasy. “What Might Be Has Not Yet Appeared” includes a work by Pierre recently acquired by the Dallas Museum of Art (“Lest You Fall,” 2019) along with five canvases created specifically for this exhibition.

Pierre’s works often depict fantasy worlds inhabited by imagined characters. In the five works created for “What Could Be Has Not Yet Appeared,” for example, a central figure undergoes a process of change, eventually acquiring the power to fly and control fire. “Awash in crimsons, ochres and violets, offer a much-needed space for escape and transformation, in which the artist, the protagonist, and we as viewers can be full and expansive,” explained Hilde Nelson, curatorial assistant for contemporary art at the Dallas Museum of Art.

“What Could Be Has Not Yet Appeared” coincides in time with another exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art, “Bosco Sodi: The Force of Destiny,” which features 30 works by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi (b. 1970 in Mexico City) in the museum’s sculpture garden. #2021 #DMADallasMuseumofArt #theartwolf
