Samara Ash


Lorna Samara Ash received a dual Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Electronic Intermedia & Painting, along with an Art History Minor from the University of Florida through New World School of the Arts.  Ash is an interdisciplinary artist who uses a variety of media, including photography, sound, video, sculpture, installation, drawing & painting to depict scenarios where idolatry of notions¬¬, objects, and entities prevails.  Ash’s work dwells within undertones encompassing literature, philosophy, and religion; her most recent body of work utilizes music composition, writing and performance to convey these concepts to the masses.


Ash has been part of numerous exhibitions including Arteamericas Fair, Mia. Beach Convention Center; 80” of Art, NWSA Alumni Auction, Sagamore Hotel, Mia. Beach, FL; Mu-Dai, Freedom Tower, Downtown Miami; Art Basel Miami 2011,The Cricket Taplin Art Collection, S.

Adler Guerrier


Miami-based artist Adler Guerrier (b. 1975) works in a variety of media, including sculpture, photography, prints, and collaged works on paper. Guerrier’s practice investigates the mutability of text and image and the variability of meaning. He is as interested in politics as he is in poetics, and his work explores the rich territory between them. Often using Miami as a physical site and an embodiment of realized (and unrealized) moments in American political and social history, Guerrier examines, repurposes, and sometimes fictionalizes the city through his work. Guerrier’s oeuvre is expansive in its engagement with the urban environment, art history and materials and this exhibition will bring together a selection of work from the last decade of his career alongside new work produced for this presentation.
