Nina Isabelle is a multidisciplinary artist working with abstract painting, performance art, video, photography, and sculpture. Her background also includes alternative process photography and modern dance. Isabelle identifies with Maximalism and Action Art, pushing material and information past the point of recognition in a way that forces a shift in meaning, revealing new information that can transform and challenge the limits of material, perception, and belief. Sensory input is deconstructed to the extent that meaning becomes shifted and interpretations become a phenomena of psychic imprint. Her work often references the inability of communication which is used to visualize reality, the failure of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content, as well as the shortcomings of literal language.

In the past year Isabelle’s work has been included in the Upstate Video Vignette Project II with F.A.G (Feminist Art Group) at IV Soldiers Gallery from Brooklyn at Rosekill. She has performed at Panoply Performance Lab in Brooklyn as well as at The Linda Mary Montano Art / Life Institute in Kingston. Isabelle’s work has also been exhibited at Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) Museum in Gimpo, Korea as well as in The New School’s Social Justice Show at The Bushwick Collective. Her film Mother vs. God  was chosen by Marilyn Manson’s Daisy Berkowitz, Scott Mitchell Putesky, as part of The San Diego Art Institute’s show The Dead Are Not Quiet. Also, her work was included in The Jernquist Coloring Book Show by Honey McMoney at Studio Fidlär in Berlin, and in January 2016 Isabelle was interviewed by the International Art Publication, ArticulAction, Special Issue.
