Nicole Duennebier Solo Exhibition

Every day, through Feb 7
Nucleus Portland Alberta (Portland)
This is an in-person event
With work evoking 17th century Dutch still-lifes, painter Nicole Duennebier presents an exhibition of new works exploring natural phenomena. Unlike the pristine fruit bowls of yore, "Feast" will depict the good, the bad, and the ugly. The artist writes: "The classic chiaroscuro darkness in still-life is a primordial soup, a pool of black that springs forth a decadent, and sometimes horrible, growth. I’ve always been attracted to the obsolete idea of spontaneous generation, all that awful stuff popping into existence for no reason." 

Nicole Duennebier received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Maine College of Art with a major in painting. Her BFA thesis work was most influenced by research into 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, and perceived a natural connection between the darkness and intricacy of undersea regions and the aesthetic of 16th-century Dutch still-life painting.
