Painting & Drawing
Noa Fodrie is a Memphis born and bred artist and art educator. As a biracial woman raised in the South, she is healing the “what are you/are you sure” narrative of being a fetishized pit stop in diversity bingo. The documentation of movement as an embodiment practice guides her work. She reclaims her body by taking it down to its simplest shape, movement, form, and color. The shapes created by overlaid blind contour drawings are blurring movements together, remembering the motion that came before. She graduated from the University of Memphis with a BFA in Art Education and is currently pursuing her MFA in Painting and Drawing at the University of Colorado Boulder.
