Nick Gilmore (July 2017) is a Miami-based artist, freelance woodworker, and adjunct professor of printmaking at Florida International University. He received an MFA in Visual Arts (2014) from Florida International University, Miami, FL; and a BA in Studio Art (1999) from Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL. His work generally finds form through printmaking and sculpture. Often informed by his experience in the construction trades, his projects explore dialectical relationships and history, with frequent nods to Taoist philosophy.
He is very grounded to Miami itself and continually mines from its local culture and history to fuel his artwork, which typically uses local themes to reference culture at large and aspects of the general human condition. He has exhibited in Miami at Locust Projects, 6th Street Container, Turn-Based Press, Dimensions Variable, The Phillip and Patricia Frost Art Museum, and the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood.
