ARTIST / SCULPTOR 

NH DePass (b.1990) is an artist from New Orleans, Louisiana. He holds an MFA in Sculpture from The Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY and a BA from The Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA. In his work there is disjuncture between old and new: a tension between craft and digital innovation. DePass uses classical techniques like hand sewing and carpentry while incorporating digital graphics and printing to create works that disturb historical and cultural timelines. In 2021, his work was featured in the solo exhibition Form Destroyer at Thierry Goldberg Gallery in New York City. He has exhibited in group exhibitions at The Pit, Los Angeles; Public Gallery, London; GYNP Gallery, Berlin; and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans. In 2021, he was awarded “1st” place in the Louisiana Contemporary exhibition at the Ogden Museum of Southern art.
