Intro
Born in 1981, Nicole Schuster grew up in a town near Munich, Germany. Dreaming all childhood to become an architect, Nicole Schuster was trained as a goldsmith in Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz from 2001-2004 and graduated with a diploma in "Jewellery & Objects" at Pforzheim University in 2008. She was trained as a goldsmith in Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz and graduated in “Jewellery & Objects” at Pforzheim University in 2008. After some time working in Ireland she now creates in her studio in Munich, Germany since 2012.
 

Statement

Intrigued by the power and beauty of growth and change, I explore the unfolding of life, decay and evolvement of something new as an endless process. So fragile and yet so powerful, inexorable. My work reflects on survival and power in a man-made world, based on two opposites: rational construction and the natural world.
Who survives? What will persist? Where is it going to?
I aim to analyse various moments of the interaction between two elements, that lie between integration, adaption and suppression. It is a journey from the beginning of life to the triumph of the other: a give and take.
