Project Gallery: Nicole Cherubini

For Pérez Art Museum Miami's Project Gallery series, Nicole Cherubini (b. 1970, Boston) created a new body of interrelated free-standing and wall-based works. Comprised of a diversity of objects, this exhibition responds to the architecture of the space and expand on the artist’s previous bodies of work. The installation incorporates new shapes into the artist’s lexicon and new materials, combining clay and wooden support panels that allow for a renewed consideration of scale.

Cherubini mines the history and formal possibilities of clay to create works that range from spare, tense minimalism to exuberant and brash decadence. This material has been her primary vehicle for 20 years and she employs a specific constellation of forms and techniques that recur throughout her practice and which have come to constitute her unique vocabulary. These forms are variously reinterpreted, conjoined, stretched, embellished, and combined with other materials to create discrete works that suggest an investigative and experimental approach to sculpture. Cherubini's work is indebted to an abiding engagement with clay itself and the core of her project resides in her ability to bring the medium's particular materiality, forms, and history to bear on the ongoing dialogue of painting and sculpture.
