View Three

Della Nohl, Sarah Sense, Duane Slick

The Nicole Fiacco Gallery is pleased to announce VIEW THREE, an exhibition featuring the work of three contemporary artists of Native American background. 


Della Nohl (American b. 1956 ) will exhibit black and white photographs from her celebrated Day of the Dead series which capture haunting images of the festival in Oaxaca, Mexico.  Nohl’s images are compelling moments of cultural mythology and ritual.  Nohl recently exhibited 23 works from the series at the Indianapolis Art Center in Indianapolis.  Nohl’s work can be found at the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, CA; Erie Art Museum, Erie, PA; Frost Art Museum, Miami, FL; MOCA Cleveland, Ohio.  Formerly of New York, Della Nohl lives and works in Wisconsin.


Sarah Sense (American b. 1980) will exhibit mixed media works that deconstruct digitally manipulated photographs of Native American culture that are then woven into two and three dimensional works based on the pattern of Chitimacha baskets.  Sense combines old forms with a new cultural iconography concerned with ethnicity and gender.  Sense has exhibited her work at the Deitch Projects Art Parade, NY, NY; Elliot Fouts Gallery, Sacramento, CA; A.I.R Gallery, NY, NY and the Parsons School of Design, NY, NY, among others.  Sarah Sense lives and works in California.


Duane Slick (American b. 1961  ) will exhibit recent paintings concerned with storytelling, timelessness and the subconscious.  Slicks’ paintings are luminous and atmospheric, looking as though they were made of smoke and light rather than linen and paint.  Works by Duane Slick was recently included in two significant museum exhibitions; No Reservations: Native American History and Culture in Contemporary Art at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT and Changing Hands 2:  Art Without Reservation at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.  Slick is a Professor of Painting and Printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design.  In 2003, Slick was a recipient of the Painters and Sculptors Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation.  His work has been reviewed in many publications including the New York Times and the Boston Globe.  Slick’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Heard Museum, the National Museum of the American Indian, Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, NJ; Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee, WI and the Rockwell Museum of Western Art, Corning, NY.
