A native of Caracas, Venezuela, Valerie Name is an artist currently based out of Brooklyn, NY.
Valerie first discovered her infatuation with detail during her studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design in the Interior Design program. After graduating with a BFA in Interior Design, she was drawn to Pratt where she mastered concept development and translating experience into visual form.
Name’s body of mixed media prints focus on ephemerality, distortion of scale, and human consequence, while the lack of a common or recognizable medium even further abstracts the work. Her explorations are intended to envelope the viewer in such a way that the associative mind is abandoned. These micro-landscapes may be imperceivable to the human eye, but the intent is to awaken the audience to the fruits of human consequence through time.
