“The Girls Who Spun Goldby Nydia Blas

I delicately weave stories concerning circumstance, value, and power and use my work to create a physical and allegorical space presented through a Black feminine lens. I am drawn to matters of sexuality and intimacy, calling upon my lived experience as a girl, woman, and mother. The result is an environment that is dependent upon the belief that alchemy takes place in the tangible world. And that in order to maintain resiliency, a magical outlook is necessary.
