We at Arroyo like to think we’re looking out for amazing art no matter what we’re doing, and when we saw the images from Naomi Grossman, we were blown away. Her art is gorgeous; both sophisticated and edgy, art that is more than visually pleasing, but challenges the mind. Works like Touch Me ask the viewer to contemplate more than just the unique, romantic shape of the human body, but what the body expresses with its simple, silent pose.
With Holding My Breath, Grossman asks us to contemplate more than words, but the functioning of the human mind’s repetitive thought processes as its own art form. The words become fluid, artistic motions and cascading shapes. On paper, almost abstract, we can conjure a whole new way of thinking about the things we say and how they’re perceived.
