Nomeda Grumada

Sculpture/mixed media

The artist states the main concern of her art is to expose fascination with body forms, using materials to create novel textures and moods. Grumada produces objects with a minimum of detail and color to emphasize the basic lines of the subject’s form, but also employs a multitude of materials (sisal twine, cotton gauze, toothpicks, jig-saw puzzles, dollar bills…) to create symbolic meanings of the materials applied. “Is this lady dollar hungry, is she tiger-like in her dealing with the opposite sex, is she simply dressed up to ply dice?” “The hidden meaning of each personality is the big concern of my sculptures,” the artist states.
