Nicole McConville



It's hard to take something that nature has crafted such as a bird bone, or even a finely rusted piece of metal, and make it into something better (and by better I mean the sum equals more than its parts.) Nicole McConville's work does that for me. She's got a knack for creating juxtapositions between objects that are at once visually stimulating and metaphorically poignant. In her own eloquent words, she is concerned with "revealing the sacred within the seemingly ordinary." Nicole hails from Asheville, North Carolina and has exhibited her work around the U.S., as well as in Germany and England. Her pieces have been featured in several art books including "The Altered Object" and "Crafting Personal Shrines."

I saw Nicoles work at a gallery on a recent trip to Asheville, and was astounded. I didn't want to stop looking at them. Does she ever do workshops????
