Nicole Art Sense Foundation and Gallery Vriend van Bavink cordially invite you to the launch of the website of visual artist Nicole Carstens on June 17. The launch of the website will be accompanied by an exhibition of a selection of her work.
Nicole Carstens spend her life (1958-2001), living and working in The Netherlands, the United States and travelling abroad. After her studies at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and MFA Pratt Institute in New York, Nicole produced a remarkable number of objects, installations and other work in a variety of artistic disciplines. For her work she used readily available materials from daily life, transforming them into new compositions in the spirit of Arte Povera. In her photography series Blue Notes from Thin Air, she drew from her own experience as a flight attendant. In the same way, her series in the studios at the World Trade Center grew naturally from her inside position in the New York art scene. In November 2000 she became seriously ill. Just before she died in April 2001, the Nicole Art Sense foundation was established in order to preserve her work and to continue the spirit underlying her work.
The exhibition is curated by Gallery Vriend van Bavink in cooperation with art historian Marja Bloem and will feature photography, drawings and objects by Nicole Carstens.
