Nomad is a work of art, a home, and freedom for Dominique Moody. Once a realist illustrator, after the loss of her central eyesight she has transitioned to working as an assemblage sculptor – and the Nomad is just that and more:
“NOMAD”, is an assemblage artwork that functions as a dwelling and is mobile. It’s practice reflects the ideas and actions of “social sculpture”. As a portrait of Home it inspires viewers to remember, to think and to feel a call and response to action. It’s mobility commands freedom. It’s porch evokes storytelling.” – Dominique Moody
Dominique plans to travel, making her tiny house a nomadic artist in residence when invited to be a guest by arts organizations, cultural centers, museums, communities or educational campuses. The house itself is not a studio, so she plans to work outside where the raw materials will also be found. Site specific artwork will be created, the process documented, and left behind to be discovered by chance.
Below is a recent interview with Dominique which aired originally on KCET.
