Solo Exhibition by Artist in Resident Amelia Samari

Same Same But Different

Amelia Samari

September 15 – March 10

 

 

“Same Same But Different” is a body of work completed over a six month Artist in Residence by fiber artist, Amelia Samari. Commonly used to trick consumers into buying counterfeits, the phrase “Same Same But Different” means something is functionally or aesthetically the same as something else but differs in methods of implementation or minor details. As this concept applies to the body of work, the figures displayed bear a strong resemblance to the bags and baskets that Samari makes and sells yet they do not serve as functional vessels. By removing the original functionality from the vessels while maintaining a similar aesthetic, utility takes second to form, thus forcing the viewer to decide what what the objects represent.READ MORE

Finding Balance: YogaFloats with Kelsey Barden

This past February Kelsey Barden walked into BoxJelly on a mission to build her dream business from the ground up.

On Creative Inspiration

I’ve been out of the country for the last five weeks, and for five weeks I have drifted in and out of the frustration of not being in my studio and not having access to my sewing machine. Traveling through Europe, I found myself surrounded by an abundance of beauty and with every step, trying, almost desperately, to find a source of inspiration. READ MORE
