Congratulations to our second Window Project Featured Artist - Carmen “Payasa” Moses!
Carmen "Payasa" Moses is a native of Augusta Georgia and has always had a passion for art. She chose the pseudonym Payasa, the Spanish word for clown, to describe her personality as well as the tension between joy and sorrow expressed in her work, often through color and conceptual contrasts. Her art fuses cold, worldly mechanical and technological elements with warmer spiritual and human elements to comment on life in both the known present and an unknown future.
