August 2006: Mar Goman Mixed Medium
Mar Goman's work is eccentric and unique and does not easily fit into any particular category of art. The two dimensional work in the show will include collages, mixed media drawings on found papers and embroidered drawings. Sculptural pieces will include a new series of primitive figures made from scraps of fabric and colored threads; sculptural books incorporating drawing, sewing, and found objects; a variety of assemblages, and an altar to animals who die as a result of human culture. Her work frequently addresses the human psycho-spiritual journey and often includes text and human, animal, or spirit figures. The influence of outsider art as well as tribal art can be seen in her work, but she filters these influences through a highly personalized vision that tends to unify what might otherwise be a disparate body of work.
