Somerville Arts Council Fellowship winner Nicole Duennebier has installed

"HATCH" the series of large scale Dioramas in Davis Sq. Inside-OUT gallery (the CVS windows).

Natural phenomenon—dermoid cysts, fungus, invasive flora/fauna—and her love of candied, old-master, opulence have a constant presence in her work. Nicole’s attention to detail is evident and continues to explore the fact that nature itself, or anything living really, never totally allows you to have a perfectly idealized experience. Inspired by this year’s ArtBeat theme, she uses the same principles found in her painting style to create a series of large scale dioramas, entitled “HATCH”. This series features dynamic collection of eight contributing artists which is seamlessly integrated into Duennebier’s macabre aesthetic.

TONIGHT (WED) July 9 at 7pm

About the Artist and Curator

Nicole Duennebier was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1983. She received her Bachelor in Fine Arts at Maine College of Art with a major in painting. Her BFA thesis work was most influenced by research about the coastal ecosystems of Maine. In 2006, she was awarded the Monhegan Island Artists Residency. On the island she continued her work with sea life. Duennebier saw a natural connection between the darkness and intricacy of undersea regions and the aesthetic of 16th century Dutch still-life painting. In 2008 she moved to Boston. She is currently exhibiting with the 13FOREST gallery in Arlington, Massachusetts.
