December's "Local Artist Series" Presents Nicco Alesci
About this event:
Nicco is a young Cleveland artist primarily working with ceramics. Through his experiences with nature, Nicco has observed the patterns of plants & animals and the spirits that embody them, transforming them into the brightly colored works that are presented in this show. Nicco’s process for construction in clay often varies as he finds new ways to develop shapes and patterns from adding and subtracting, repetition, and rhythm.
“Inspiration comes to me in many ways. I have been heavily influenced by artwork, architecture, and ways of living in Ancient South America, South East Asia, and many other native and traditional regions of the world. ~ Nicco
Nicco continues to explore and expand on new ideas and adventures. He dedicates a lot of my time building and working with wood. Construction, sculpture, drawing, painting, ceramics, and casting all seem to find their means and purposes throughout his studio and daily practice.
Nicco is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in Ceramics.
