Nydia Blas created collaboratively with a group of young women she met through her work at the Southside Community Center in Ithaca, NY to create a series of images which stress notions of connection and support through female relationships. These images are a glimpse into a world which sparkles with flecks of gold, emphasizing the use of magic as a tool of resilience against societal pressures that communicate that Black female bodies are about other people’s pleasure, and not their own. Blas received her MFA from Syracuse University and is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.
