About

Angelica Clyman is a visual artist and writer who lives and works in her native South Florida. Her work explores the sacred in the secular, and the potential of revelation in contemplating the seemingly mundane. Her most recent series of paintings and mixed media sculptures are inspired by her hometown of Hollywood, Florida: a city that has a history that only spans about one hundred years, but has experienced dramatic change in that short period of time. This series shows various South Florida sites existing at once as both past and present, honoring the memory and history of these unique and almost-forgotten places. Her first novel, Dominion of the Star, continues to expand on both the spiritual and apocalyptic themes referenced in her paintings and sculptures. Angelica is a graduate of New World School of the Arts (BFA) and Florida International University (MFA), and served as Director of the Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery for nearly a decade. She currently teaches studio art at Broward College.
