Tyanna buie - mfa 2010
First African American Woman to win a Mary L. Nohl Fellowship
Tyanna Buie, a painter and the first African American woman to win a Nohl, explores the impermanence of her childhood in the Illinois Department Foster Care System in her work. Through a journalistic gathering of information and materials, Buie looks at how her own narrative has been the product of piecing together, discarding and concealing over time, of packing and unpacking. This translates to vacancies, erasure-like passages, in Buie’s beautiful painting.
