Upcoming Artists in Residence
JANUARY - MARCH 2019
Profoundly interested in the idea of hybridization (sparked from her Hapa heritage – she is ½ Japanese and ½ Caucasian), Solomon’s mixed media works revolve thematically around domesticity, craft, and masculinity/femininity, and often the pursuit of art as science/research. She is frankly obsessed with color/color theory and is drawn to found objects tending to alter them conceptually so that their meanings and original uses or intents are re-purposed. She often fuses “wrong” things together – re contextualizing their original purposes, and incorporating materials that inherently question and skirt the line between ART and CRAFT.
APRIL - JUNE 2019
