Merik Goma (Born Manistee, MI, 1987) is an artist who works with light to create dramatic and thought provoking images. Merik focuses on culture and psychology in his work to draw the viewer into asking questions but themselves and the world around them. By having a narrative that plays with emotion and ambiguity; Merik engages the viewer to add their narrative to a world he has created. Merik’s works are painterly in nature due to a control of light he has honed over the years as an artist in multiple disciplines.
Merik is currently working in the NXTHVN fellowship
