River Soma

Class of 2019


My artistic process is ritualistic and historiographic in conception but process-based and intuitive in execution across media. I explore ideas of singularity, duality and multiplicity as a reflection of individual and collective states of being. Circles are present throughout my work as a reference to the human body, the earth and completeness. Materials such as deer fur, rope and clay are reminiscent of my childhood home on a farm where these abundant materials came to embody the quintessence of the natural world and my close ties to the land.

I am addressing physical and energetic states of being and their process of becoming as an interdisciplinary artist. Using two- and three-dimensional space, I am able to access, through the materials themselves, a nuanced exploration and revelation of truth.
