"Nomadic Series: Finding My Way" by Marryam Momma

5 inch diameter circle - Analog collage on wood, wood print and mixed media --unframed

Tanzanian-Nigerian collage artist Marryam Moma is a master of the art of crafting harmonious visual-narrative displays. She chose to escape the rigidity of a formal architecture background in favor of building a creative practice that highlights the experiences of people like her. Moma depicts Black joy through a multidimensional use of cutouts, layered paper, acrylic paints, gold leaf and mixed media. Partly autobiographical, her work dissects the complexities of living in a Black body and celebrates Black joy, reinforcing ideas about individuality and self-love.

The discipline and execution of her art reflect a formal education in architecture. Marryam’s creations break collective contemporary stereotypes, seeking to shift perceptions of and attitudes toward Black bodies, specifically women. Marryam’s practice explores the complexities of Black life to celebrate the human form and to reframe the dynamics of how the Black body is perceived in a painfully divisive society. Her work lives in the permanent collections of multinational corporations, such as Microsoft and Starbucks, and has been featured on popular television programs such as Black-ish, Bel Air and Cherish the Day. In addition, she has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad.
