About Nicole Patel

Nicole Patel is from New York City and lives and works in Hudson Valley. Her works are created using non-toxic and sustainable materials like spirulina and turmeric in an attempt to change the art landscape and comment on the toxicity of traditional mediums on the environment. An array of artistic methods and media informs her minimalist aesthetic. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at Morris Adjmi Architects in New York. Her work is featured in numerous publications and held in private collections. Nicole received her BFA from Syracuse University.


My work is informed by the sustainability of simple, natural materials. Every work that I make could essentially be dismantled and repurposed.

I regularly work with untreated fabrics and strings to develop considered lines and blanks.

My designs are influenced by minimal architecture and the practice of Zen Buddhism. They unfold meditatively.

I think the challenge in our modern world is to find a way to make something by hand and to find value in imperfection. We are looking for something humanistic to live with.

As an artist, I work to meet those needs.
