I am...
I am an artist living and working in Atlanta, Ga. I have a BFA from the Ringling College of Art and Design and currently work as a party designer at Added Touch Catering.
About my artwork
Though I was born in the United States, my cultural and familial history is resolutely one of other places and identities. As Jewish South Africans, my parents fled the apartheid government of South Africa, not as an act of protest, but rather in fear that the changing tides of history might one day swallow them--swallow us--whole. My work is an attempt to ingratiate and reconcile these disparate identities and geographic spaces with my own personal politics. A generation removed from South Africa, I attempt to reconnect artistically with a place and a political perspective from which I am linked by blood. My sculptures are a tongue-in-cheek reimagining of stock "African" and American kitsch images: the slain antelope, the dominant hunter, the mounted rifle. In replicating these ubiquitous images, I hope to foster my own understanding of the African continent and my experiential background. I am seeking to create a new identity and sense of place, while not discarding the past completely.
I live for crafting; my art straddles the lines between high/low culture and disturbing/beautiful. I love to make people look at things that should repulse them, but attract them instead. I like to imitate and construe nature using craft materials. Check out some of my work on my blog. www.romyaura.blogspot.com
