Angela Azmitia (b. 1990, Ft. Lauderdale, FL) received a BFA in Studio Art from the University of South Florida and is in current pursuit of her MFA at SAIC in Printmedia, where she works across disciplines.
There is a sensitivity to the world that is brought on by death, a realization that places and objects have the ability to hold memory even long after a moment has passed. The absence of a figure in space allows for the observer of that space to become the figure, the same way in which an object is not activated until it is seen. I am interested in what an object can tell us about its owner in that absence and also about ourselves. Can someone separate their own consciousness or state of being from the experiential, and if not what does that say about our own interpretations, about us as individuals, how we interact with the world?
