Meet artists Momo and Pompa, Saturday Nov 21 from 10 am to 3 pm.
Momo and Pompa (Maureen Brown and Charles Harrison)
Maureen “Momo” Brown and Charles “Pompa” Harrison are a couple who collaborate in a kaleidoscope of color, textures, media, and patterns in painting, light sculpture, installations, and playful decorative recycled furniture.
Pompa is from Aguascalientes, Mexico, where he studied and exhibited art at La Casa de la Cultura and Casa de las Artes Visuales. He is known for his massive, colorful public light sculptures. His work has been shown in Mexico, Texas, and Arizona. His art philosophy is to absorb and funnel information from past and present and to materialize volume, shape, and light into multi-dimensional form.
Momo is a museum professional with over 20 years’ experience as an archaeologist in Texas, Jamaica, and Central America, as well as being a founding director of the Museum of the Coastal Bend in Victoria, Texas. Her work is a culmination of the exploration of our connection to world cultures and to the animate and inanimate environment around us.
