Work by artist Nicole Patel is now available in store, featuring the 'Fine Grids' series and the new 'Plaster Works' series
Artists statement below:
The pieces are informed by organic materials because they can hold at once quiet humility and great importance.
In working with these pure materials, I aim to work in a way that will uphold their full potential
the pieces could essentially be dismantled and repurposed, resulting in somewhat of a perpetual blank canvas
With the influence of minimal architecture and the practice of zen buddhism, the work unfolds as graphically
sound and resonates with a meditative quality.
I think the challenge is to find a way to make something by hand, in a modern world, that doesn’t need to be
excused for it's imperfections. I also think we are looking for something humanistic to live with today.
It is my intention as an artist to satisfy those needs.
