[ARCHIVED] Fresh{AIR} - Artist in Residence


Artist Melody Nunez will be stopping in to visit us for the weekend of November 11-12!


"I am a mixed-media artist who works in fiber art, using fabric, thread, and vintage textiles. I am compelled to create; making art fuels me and is a positive form of self-expression that has provided a sheltering harbor during life’s many storms. I use art to process my life experiences and translate them into a visual language. Though my work is autobiographical it explores universal themes.

I am drawn to handmade vintage textiles, partly because of their ties to women makers from the past, like my grandmothers. I celebrate the skill and artistry of these women and strive to interrupt the traditional fine art landscape with their materials and techniques. I see beauty in these domestic objects, even when they're worn or damaged, and find it thrilling to give these items a new visual significance. I love seeing the artist’s “hand" in art and value irregularity in my work - evidence that it was carefully made by hand versus being manufactured."


We've invited Melody to work on a current project in our space, be sure to stop in and see what she's up to! Our Fresh{AIR} program removes the barrier between visitors and creators, allowing guests to interact, ask questions, and see work being created in real time! Join us next weekend in welcoming Melody to Brea Gallery!
