Addison Namnoum



Artist's Biography

Addison Namnoum is a self-taught artist working in oils and photography. She is primarily concerned with memory and how it works its nostalgia on us: No matter the medium, the images she creates reach for a specific expression of time and place through color, light, and composition. Her most recent body of paintings follows her relationship with the Maine coastal landscape, where she grew up summering as a girl. 

In her series of photos titled Traces: Return to Basilicata, she explores the visual landscape of southern Italy, where she traveled, worked, and lived for the spring of 2014 while she composed a collection of short stories tied to her family history.
