Ikeda Moody Golding (American, b. 1998)
Ikeda Moody-Golding’s works transport viewers to a dreamlike world beyond the tangible, exploring the liminal space between reality and imagination. The use of airbrush with acrylic in her works produces subtle and seamless color blends that give the artwork an abstract, immaterial, or ephemeral quality. Recent works incorporate uncanny dolls with a familiar yet unsettling feel. The dolls' fixed expressions and glassy eyes serve as conduits to the subconscious, creating a space for reflection and contemplation. Ultimately, in their work, eyes act as symbols that invite the viewer to explore the innermost parts of their psyche. Moody-Golding’s work is a reflection of their own introspective journey, a search for meaning and purpose in a fragmented and surreal world.
