Nazrene is an Artist located in Atlanta, GA. Her interdisciplinary work is rooted in her studies of Photography, Video and Sculpture at Florida State University. Much of her work is drawn to the gaps between mental health and societal normalcy. Personal in nature, her work is also reflective of both her mixed-race, as well as, her Palestinian-American identity, addressing the turmoil in the West Bank.
Her studies in sculpture inform both her use of double exposure photography to build narratives from emotions and moments, as well as her canvases of acrylic built up with layers of paint dipped paper. Nazrene continues her search for the unidentifiable through exploration, observation, and experience.
