CV

Nandi Loaf investigates the existential state of the artist by implicating herself, through the construction of the identity ’Nandi Loaf: the artist’. This fetishization of the artist as such creates a hermetically sealed practice: a hedonistic exploration that Loaf refers to as ‘hyperparticipation.’ Often blurring the lines between her simulated and physical presence, Loaf’s works move seamlessly between paintings, prints, acrylic sculptures, and home-built machines to create maximally reduced interventions. In doing so, Loaf makes her subject the social and financial sites of exchange in the art world. Nandi Loaf is an artist living and working in the 21st century. Loaf received her BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science of Art in 2014. Selected exhibitions include solo presentations with King's Leap (New York, NY) and Sebastian Gladstone (Los Angeles, CA), as well as a two-person presentation with Springsteen (Baltimore, MD). Loaf was the subject of a solo presentation at NADA Miami 2022, a part of the TD Curated Spotlight. Recent group shows include Room 3557 (Los Angeles, CA), and M+B (Los Angeles, CA).
