Nathalie Alfonso was born in Bogota, Colombia, and currently lives and works in South Florida. Alfonso holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX, and a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Florida International University. Unseen work and the exercise of emotional control are central to Alfonso’s practice. The qualities of invisibility and visibility become the foundations from which she develops drawings, installations, performances, and videos. Alfonso has exhibited and performed her work in galleries, universities, and public spaces, such as NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, Dimensions Variable, Spinello Projects, Art and Culture Center/Hollywood, Miami Beach Urban Studios, The Projects – Fat Village, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Sweet Pass Sculpture Park, Site131, and Marymount University. Alfonso was selected for the 2019-2020 South Florida Cultural Consortium, received the Mercedes-Benz Financial Services' Experiencing Perspectives prize in 2019, and received the Jones Fund and Zelle Fund Grant.
