Los Angeles based artist, Laurie Nye was born in Memphis, Tennessee. Through a robust and exuberant palette, her densely populated paintings and drawings achieve a phantasmagoric level of vivacity conjuring distinctly extraterrestrial potentials. She earned a BFA from the Memphis College of Art in 1995 and a MFA from the CalArts in 2002. She has exhibited with The Pit, Big Pictures LA, 5 Car Garage, Guerrero Gallery, 0-0 LA, PostLA, Statlor Waldorf Gallery, Elizabeth Dee, New York, Richard Telles Fine Art, among many others.  Her work has been written about in publications including The New Yorker, Los Angeles Times, Artforum, and LA Weekly. Nye is a member of the all-female collectives The Binder and the sci-fi oriented Witch and Chameleon.
