Leda Catunda Biography

For over thirty years Leda Catunda has appropriated objects and images and used them as raw material in her art making, simultaneously challenging and mirroring the image ravenousness of our time. Catunda is particularly interested in pop culture, consumerism, taste, and the idea of belonging. The artist creates paintings using multiple fabrics, including velvet, silk, and voile. She also employs patterned textiles or creates patterns from her repertoire of drawings and images.
