SAME, BUT DIFFERENT: BOXES AND CORNERS by Ursula Miller
Monday, June 17 – Saturday, August 3, 2019 Public Reception and Artist Talk: Saturday, July 13, 3-5 PM
Ursula Miller is a DC-based artist and graphic designer who studied painting and darkroom photography at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in New Jersey. While her background is in the slower processes of analog, hand-held media, where the object is precious, her current work explores the relationship that the ease of capture and surplus of imagery in today’s culture creates. The projects in Same, but Different explore the space between repetition and uniqueness, represented in the volume of discrete, similar things, and in particular, shared experiences experienced separately.
Fithi Abraham is an Eritrean-American artist who lives and works in the Washington, D.C. area, and works predominantly with acrylic paintings and video installations. Having been born and raised in Asmara, Eritrea, his works often examine and juxtapose the western and East African cultures. Recurring themes in his works are ambiguous concepts of time, identity and history. His works often have the appearance of fragmentation and deconstruction.
