Toya NorthingtonToya Northington

I am devoted to translating earthly elements into an intimate message. I use nature as a metaphor for the evolution of the modern women. I layer colors native to my adolescent environment to convey emotions, such as comfort, joy, sorrow and loneliness.

I seeks to bring attention to the oscillations of life felt by the “universal woman”, by exploring the perennial contradictions that make up the female experience, and the means, women find to endure the currents of societal expectations, felt in the face of their own metamorphosis, from adolescence to adulthood.

With influences stemming from studies of French Impressionism and both Japanese and abstract art forms, my work is empowered by the responsibilities that women have as wives, mothers and life educators, from both an internal and external struggle, to adapt to an ever-changing set of roles in society.
