Nicole Pietrantoni: Alas, Alack
Interested in our complex relationship with the natural world, contemporary printmaker Nicole Pietrantoni creates large-scale installations and works on paper that speak to the inevitability of competing stories and representations. Her innovative work combines digital and traditional printmaking techniques, most recently culminating in several series of accordion books that each expand to create panoramic landscapes covering entire walls and spilling out onto the floor. Within these vast pieces, she seeks to engage nature as an accumulation of processes, perceptions, and narratives – a dynamic and shifting site open for interpretation. Her installations weave, evoke, inspire and invite you to look closer, to delight in the details that in turn offer a complete image unlike any you thought you would experience.
