THE ART OF: NICOLE BANOWETZ

FEBRUARY 25, 2021 — 6:30 p.m. EST

Zoom & Facebook Live

Join us for a discussion with artist Nicole Banowetz, a Colorado-based artist who works with inflatable materials. We will view the exhibition, Blow Up II, on exhibit through May 16th, and hear more about Banowetz’s work and how it intersects with the exhibition.

Nicole Banowetz is a Denver sculptor who makes sewn inflatable sculptures and delicate assembled forms. Her artwork addresses vulnerability and struggle. She empowers objects through embellishment, building up protective layers, which with time become destructive. Her forms move freely between growth and decay blurring the distinction between decoration and disease. Nicole’s work is inspired by the natural world. She addresses human qualities while using the imagery she finds in the animal, plant, mineral, and bacterial worlds. She has made made installations inspired by bacteria, parasitic fungus, viruses, radiolaria, rotifers, horses, and rhinos. All these forms she recreates in soft inflatable sculptures, which she designs and sews on her sewing machine, sometimes adding illumination from within so that the forms glow at night, and other times adding delicate sculpted porcelain forms which balance within or on top of the inflatable.
