Melodie Provenzano graduated from Parsons School of Design in 1996. After receiving her BFA, she freelanced for more than a decade painting window displays and showrooms for Saks 5th Avenue, Donna Karan, Louis Vuitton, Ferragamo and Hermes. At this time, she sharpened her drawing and painting skills while developing her fine art.
Melodie sets up still lifes with figurines and various objects and renders them meticulously, creating mock dramas that build narrative momentum when the audience assigns meaning to their relationships.
Melodie has exhibited in groups shows such as "Still Life" at Nancy Margolis Gallery, NYC, "Playing Around" at The Brattleboro Museum, VT, "Champagne & Baloney" at Jeff Bailey Gallery, NYC, "Singles" at Geoffrey Young Gallery in Great Barrington, MA and has had solo shows with Lyons Wier Gallery, NYC, Goya Contemporary in Baltimore, MD and Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago, IL.
