San Francisco based artist, Emily Gui, will be displaying her latest work entitled â€œDwellingâ€ at the Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery during the summer.
Gui is a mixed-media artist who mostly works with a technique called â€œcyanotypeâ€. Cyanotype is a kind of photography or can be used in printmaking that uses a cyan blue process. In Guiâ€™s case, she blends the two together.
â€œDwellingâ€ is a series that is dedicated to illustrating the combination of domestic living spaces blended with objects that are filled with emotion and memory.
â€œWeâ€™re excited,â€ said Emma Saperstine, gallery coordinator. â€œI think her work is beautiful and unique. The idea of home and space is very accessible work.â€
Using this technique, she has taken photographs and skewed these images with more mass made objects or scenes, blending photography, printmaking, and collaging.
Guiâ€™s exhibit is set to open on June 21 and have discussion about the series at 4:30 to 7:30 p.m..
In addition, Gui will be holding a cyanotype demonstration and workshop on Friday June 22 at 11:00 to 1:00 p.m.
Guiâ€™s work will be displayed June 21 through July 22 at the gallery.
