IMPRESSIONS AND BIOMES by Nada Romanos Abizaid
Ceramic artist Nada Romanos Abizaid invites viewers on a sensorial journey through sculptural forms in her solo exhibit IMPRESSIONS AND BIOMES, inspired by natural sites. Tactile and conceptual imprints are embodied in works depicting biomes and a playful dialogue among the forms. Hand-built with clay, glazed, and fired by various methods, these sculptures evoke the integral rapport between Earth’s living landscapes and the atmospheric conditions that shape them.
