In the Studio with Nicole Aquillano

This in-the-studio video gives us a look into the artistic process of Nicole Aquillano, one of the Show’s emerging artists. Now based in Boston, Nicole grew up in Pittsburgh, and she’s been revisiting her roots during a residency at the Society for Contemporary Craft, where this video was taken.

Nicole says she “makes work about place” and has been enjoying exploring the place where she grew up in her latest work while interacting with visitors to the Society’s exhibition space and store. See more photos and read about her residency on her website.

“I am forever influenced by my longing to return to the comfort and stability of home, which I satisfy by creation of work with the ability to establish intimate connections,” says Nicole. “I draw subtle narratives on functional work to elicit memories of times past. I create a story you can hold in your hand forever.”
