Nicole Pietrantoni: This, Our Warmest Year

With a specific interest in printmaking’s historic relationship to representation, Nicole’s artwork gestures to humans’ role in constructing and idealizing landscape. Her most recent installations feature series of handbound accordion books that expand to create large-scale panoramic images. Each book contains text by her collaborator, Devon Wootten, who excises language from climate change reports to craft poems. The works function as both images and texts, using the book as a site for recording and preserving ecologically fraught landscapes. Referencing 19th-century panoramas as well as the Romantic painting tradition, this work nods to a period when humans’ relationship to landscape was rapidly transformed.
