Kalimah Muhammad is an interdisciplinary artist creating abstract sculptures and installations, as well as drawings, texts, and instructions. She gathers subject matter from personal experiences and edits the experience to specific sensory moments using construction materials and processes such as casting and assemblage. Amplifying those sensory moments often results in Muhammad’s work actively functioning to maintain its balance, tension, or position.
Her investigation of sensory knowledge encourages a heightened visual awareness of the everyday experience and aims to reference as well as reflect on our collective understanding of materials and the function of abstract forms in our lives. Materials include a mixture of found and fabricated objects, primarily of wood, concrete, and steel.
Originally from New Jersey, Muhammad currently lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Montserrat College of Art. She has been a member of the Boston Sculptors Gallery since 2012.
