NORA PINEDA

Collective Exhibition
October 1 – October 21, 2021
Reception: Thursday, October 7, 2021 6-8 PM

Reflecting on her Mexican roots, Nora Pineda transforms clay into a vessel for narrative. The forms are etched as stories in the round and fused with colors and shapes that exude a sense of magic. The figures appear as faces joined, ultimately connected to their medium, the earth. Invoking inspiration from goddesses, Pineda connects to feminine energy and speaks to the resilience and strength of women. She seeks to render healing through ideas of both, celebration and suffering that mark a cultural bond.

Using organic forms like flower petals, she cultivates their shape to resemble frequencies of auras she has encountered. Interested in the depths of emotion, working as a spiritual counselor, and massage therapist, her thoughts on these processes carry over into her creative process. Dealing with the unseen energies of the body, Pineda transfers her experience into each sculpture. The ceramic forms allow her to take on the freedom to express her personal sensibilities. The eyes of the figures gaze back at the viewer and evoke the trace of her presence.
