Influenced by Chagall, Namoda poetically suspends María’s weeping body in the center of the frame while large swathes of magenta and electric purple feverishly warp and twist in the background. A hovel lit by a single faintly flickering candle vibrates as violent onyx armory, half of a red heart, and the name of modernist Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa loom over María. The objects oppressively descend upon her frame as a bloated bottle of wine sits on her parted lips while her left arm feebly raises a white handkerchief admitting surrender. Namoda’s unique pictorial language expresses the duality of identity and place; imbuing her multifaceted characters with a heightened level of agency and deference.  With dream-like elements and folkloric references, her work calls forth an evocative and intimate recollection. 

Cassi Namoda was named one of 9 emerging Los Angeles artists to watch in 2019 by Artnet News.  Namoda’s work was acquired by the Perez Art Museum Miami in 2018.
