diversity

Tiffany is the Creative Director + Founder of Gomez Design Studio, a small start-up company that began with the vision of building functional works of art made entirely from salvaged and recycled materials. Having realized early
on in her education as a designer just how much waste the industry produced, Tiffany decided to take a more sustainable approach to her work, using only what she finds as the foundation for what is created. The materials are allowed to speak through her work in hopes of transforming the perception of what is considered waste. A question she often asks is whether we can quite literally rebuild our environment with what we already have? She believes everything we need or want already exists somewhere, we simply have to change how we are looking at the objects around us.
Over the last year, Tiffany has been developing various collections and objects that challenge societal norms outside of the current re-use trend. Her approach has become more human-forward and tactile, allowing the customer to be closer to her process. A growing materials library will soon make its way into her collections, showcasing the usability of everyday found items many of us disregard and deem as trash.

Rock and Shadow: Forty Weight is a collection of new and old works from Melanie Gonzalez’s photography. 
Rock and Shadow /Piedra y Sombra comments on the natural substances of the earth, its rocks and minerals, and how humankind’s use of it’s resources in modern civilization and the industrial cities of today create the shadows; mimicking the earth’s natural structures. 
The work is rendered in multiple-exposure photography of views from The Bronx, Long Island, the Caribbean, Brazil and Italy. 
The scenes may relate to the identities of the artist as a Bronxite and her Taíno background; celebrating, investigating and capturing through analog film the beauty of nature, architecture and people in these places. 
Forty Weight is a trucker term for coffee and refers to the portrait series presented throughout the exhibit of a moment in time as a theatrical meal takes place in a Bronx diner.
