Most Beloved, is an installation of works on paper, fabric, and wallpaper, that are recorded acts of devotion to an unknowable but deeply cherished “Beloved”; the artist’s interpretation of the life-giving power within all things. With this body of work, Nicole explores the oscillation of energy between “Lover” and the “Beloved”, through line work and repeated patterns and symbols.
Nicole Salcedo is a Cuban American interdisciplinary artist born, raised and based in Miami, Florida. Nicole earned her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she studied fibers, performance and object design, with her main practice being in drawing. Using meditative marks to create dense patterns, Nicole weaves between micro and macro lines, opening up rhythmic pathways that offer a deeper connection to the energies which flow throughout the universe.
