Nicole Aquillano

Boston, MA

Fascinated by the potential of place to define and connect us, I draw subtle narratives on functional work to elicit memories of times past. Architectural imagery drawn from my photographic collection - inlaid with intense attention to detail directly into the porcelain clay body and blurred by the movement of glaze - prompt display of my work when not in use, as a meaningful addition to any collection. I am particularly interested in exploring the human need to maintain collections, as a way to preserve the past and satisfy the longing with which we inhabit the world: driven by a desire to hold onto that which will inevitably be lost. My memories and experiences are carved onto objects intended to be both used and collected: as a way to facilitate new relationships to fill the void left by that which we will never have again.
