Nicole Reiss Rendic (1965), is a Chilean artist who in her adolescence was interested in writing, particularly in poetry, one of her favorite poets being her countryman Vicente Huidobro, who, inspired by avant-garde, cubist aesthetics, produced a poetry of great artistic value; but Nicole later turned to the practice of visual language, whose artistic training began in 1983, in a drawing workshop taught by the Chilean painter and cartoonist Carmen Silva Rojas. Since then, she has carried out several painting, engraving, xylography, and photography workshops. Painting, engraving, and analog collage are the mediums through which she usually expresses herself, although she has also made digital art and participated in editorial projects as an illustrator. Convinced that art shouldn’t be far from the community, but should reach everyone, Nicole has been involved in community and public projects.
Although the idea of conjugating spiritually through the sexual act, based on the tantric philosophy, is more evident in the works where Nicole reinterprets images from the Kamasutra, as a substratum of her visual discourse she also operates with that idea of interweaving without alluding to directly to the carnal union in works such as Todos somos uno (We are all one), inspired by the iconography of Greco-Roman art.
