Nancy Gesimondo

Artist, Curator, Interior Designer, Educator, Author


"My artwork employs methodical processes to conflate histories, materiality and science into new visceral narratives. I create assemblages comprised of materials such as shells, feathers, seedpods, semi-precious stones and crystal formations. The juxtaposition of these elements results in surreal landscapes and hybrid creatures that suggest the exploration and folly of an archeologist assembling vestiges of a distant past with no real point of reference. My work is a reflection of my appreciation of nature’s beauty and diversity, as well as my concern for its decline."


Nancy’s artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationally, including the Palm Springs Art Museum - The Galen, Palm Desert curated by Alma Ruiz and the Annual Juried Exhibition at The Queens Museum curated by Holly Solomon.


Nancy was invited to join the board of LICA in 2014.
