Encounter Nina Childress

Born in 1961 in Pasadena in the United States, Nina Childress now lives and works in Paris where she has been teaching at the Beaux-Arts since October 2019. Fluorescent paintings for Rococo hangings, Neo-Romantic punk with an operatic twist, soaps and wigs, but also portraits of Simone de Beauvoir or pop singer France Gall… no subject frightens Nina Childress. Her energetic paintings belong to many institutions (CRAC in Sète, Le Parvis in Tarbes…) but also to private and public collections in France (Frac, FNAC…) and Europe (Fonds Cantonal de Genève…).
