Nathaniel Devarie

Figurative painting


Artist's Statement:
Currently focusing on large paintings that are documenting my relationship with church while identifying as a gay man. These paintings have been using figures and portraits to tell personal narratives. They are helping me process the good and the bad experiences with church to finding my own identity. These paintings reference art history, films, religious practices, feelings, faith, and are highly imaginative. Reflecting what it’s like to be alive today, documenting our history.
