Folded & Gathered: Nicole Pietrantoni
July 1-February 4, 2023, Mezzanine Gallery

Nicole Pietrantoni’s artwork explores the complex relationship between human beings and nature via installations, artists’ books and works on paper. Folded & Gathered is a series of sculptural accordion books made of bent steel. Each column depicts flora from contemplative walks during the pandemic. Together, they create a riot of color that pushes each fragmented image between abstraction and recognizable imagery.
