Edie Nadelhaft is a painter and sculptor based in New York, NY. She received an BFA in 1995 from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston.

In her two series “Flesh & Biters”, Edie uses her own hands and mouth as the subjects for her paintings. From close-up to extreme close-up, her detailed paintings of her hands explore the complexity of skin. The crisscrossing of millions of lines and the bulges of a clenched fist at such close angles turn the hand into a strange landscape.

Close ups of her mouth rendered with vivid colors of pink and white contrasts beautifully against deep cherry red creating a lusty undertone. The closeness of her painting have such an intensity, it almost feels like she’s chewing in your face while you look at them.
