She had been working as an academic and freelance photographer in the Midwest, but Miami’s vibrancy resonated with her after a stint in the Fountainhead Residency.The wide, blue horizons of her newly adopted home contrasted sharply with her formerly landlocked surroundings, and Samoylova was acutely drawn to the fact that the urban and organic intertwined cacophonously in Miami: She observed how wild, moldy overgrowth sprouted from swollen concrete; how water seeped out from sewer drains on a sunny day, eventually soaking it …

Textual information is stretched, morphed, or veiled, then layered with different modes of visual information like coded symbols, colorful shapes, or erased gestures.The exhibition questions our understanding of visual information both from academic art history and popular culture as it relates to beauty, feminine representation, and artifice. Specifically, the exhibition analyzes the Knidian Aphrodite, the first sculpture of a female nude in Greek art that now only exists as a Roman copy. This canonical work from western art history thus embodies ideas of representation and reproduction throughout history.While the IS Projects gallery …
