Please join us for a talk with mixed media artist Naomi Grossman, whose work in sculpture, photography, mixed media installations and drawing has been shown both locally and nationally.
She explains, “My wire sculptures reference the female form, and function as drawings as well. Wire magically becomes line in space, changing in character and becoming messages from within. The wire functions to create a tension–as in the expression ‘wired’–while also conveying both strength and fragility.
“The sculptures are delicate and have words embedded in their ‘skin’. These words give the viewer the sense of eavesdropping on someone’s secret obsessive thoughts. My work brings up issues of aging, loss, displacement, isolation, insecurity and the desire for connection and love.
“My mixed media drawings use various media, sometimes incorporating words as well, to portray the human condition. They are as much about materials as subject matter. My Transit Sketch series are Ipad drawings of people I saw on my commute to my studio since 2013. It was a wonderful energizing way to start my art practice while traveling to work.”
The Glass media group is responsible for refreshments and door prizes.
