About the artist: Nicole Beck
At the heart of Nicole Beck's public works lie the rhythm and beauty of the dynamic systems found in nature and the sciences. The elements in her sculpture and installations fuse to create quirky and beautiful poems in their space. Large scalepublic works are her forte; she constructs most of her large-scale steel works herself and fully understands fabrication methods. Nicole has been very active in creating collaborative murals and mosaics for public spaces with diverse groups of apprentice artists recruited from the surrounding community.
Abstracted apparatus and organic forms are juxtaposed as poetic metaphors for archetypes of the flow and balance of energy and life systems. We could not be more delighted to once again feature her Astroterra on Clark Street!
