C.V.

"Nicole Fernandez's sculptures and drawings are totems to private comforts and altars to her life. Her sculpture is made from satin, beads, incense sticks and glamorously shabby upholstery. Both proudly confrontational and secretive they have a sense of mystery and resolve."
- press release from "Twenty Eyes"
