Naomi R Safran-Hon
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Crown Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: Naomi Safran-Hon creates work that makes gripping statements about the fragility of human experience, the complicated nature of one’s home, and the vicissitudes of collective identities. The power of her art is partially about unlocking the politics without making any of it disappear. Safran-Hon creates a captivating aesthetic system; her process lingers at the intersection of photography, sculpture, and painting with a focus on the internal energy of the material, continuously emboldening the viewer to look beyond the surface.
