ART PRACTICE: Pomerantz's interdisciplinary work in sculpture, site-specific installation, photography, and painting explores the relationship between humans and nature, landscape and land use, and themes of history, vacancy, and loss. Pomerantz is co-facilitator of the botanical arts project, WE THE WEEDS, which responds to natural histories and the relationship between built landscape and "nature" through site based projects. Pomerantz has recently participated in place-based residencies including Land Arts of the American West (Texas and South West USA), Cabin Time (Sierra Nevadas) and Lugo Land (Lugo, Italy). She has most recently shown work at Sierra Nevada College, Nevada; Texas Tech Museum, Lubbock, Texas; Fjord Gallery and Little Berlin, Philadelphia. Pomerantz was part of Philadelphia's public art festival, Monument Lab, for which she did a project about stoops.
