kEda Gomes is a South African artist, formally trained as a Fine Artist and founder of ARTfarm. Having done time in traditional media at UKZN, kEda indulged in some self-taught digital media on arriving in CT. Never having been one for blinkers, she doesn’t settle on one media and enjoys finding ways to transgress boundaries between platforms and media. The only trouble with having an open mind, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

Symbolism is a key aspect to Gomes’ work, with motifs repeated across individual which works to weave a continual narrative. Her works directly respond to surrounding environments and use everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. With a conceptual approach, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
