With found objects and unexpected platforms, Nicole Cherubini asks her viewers to reconsider their perception of modern sculpture. Her use of earthenware and spray paints blur boundaries, separating craft and “Fine Art.” Green Diamond is a study of form and color theory: the green and chartreuse are divided by a colorless border, and joined together by a restrained bleed of blue droplets. Cherubini’s work has been presented at the Santa Monica Museum of Art and the Institute for Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.
Nicole Cherubini (American, b. 1970), a sculptor known for her abstract ceramic works, uses techniques of ornamentation, assemblage, and coiling to create works that meld the visual aesthetic of high art with that of the utilitarian object. Cherubini creates works that often reference traditional art-historical uses of clay, such as vessels or vases, but which simultaneously overturn those conceits. Incorporating multiple materials into a single work, Cherubini layers them to create unexpected textures and forms, inviting viewers to reconsider the modern incantation of ceramic sculpture. Cherubini’s work has been exhibited at notable institutions such as the Santa Monica Museum of Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and MoMA Ps1, among others.
