Studio Sessions: Nikki Romanello


Welcome back to Studio Sessions and the interview with my next guest, Nikki Romanello.

Nikki earned a BFA in sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008, and an MFA in sculpture from the Pratt Institute in 2011. A majority of her pieces involve casting bones and entire skeletons in various materials, and place these paleontological artifacts in a new context. In other works, she deals with microorganisms or actual animal remnants to create scientifically-inspired installations.

Listen as she explains her process of re-contextualizing scientific objects in an artistic venue, and her interest in the life forms she chooses to work with.
