Uriya Jurik: Nomadism
14th February to 24th March 2017
Open eve 16th February 7-9pm
Born in Kazakhstan, Uriya seeks to raise global awareness of the once powerful Nomadic culture, now exposed to more prominent cultures of Japanese, Chinese or other asian origin. The exhibition Nomadism is a glimpse into the exotic beauty of Central Asia.
Born in Kazakhstan, Uriya currently lives in Guildford. Away from her homeland, Uriya’s endeavour is to create awareness of the once powerful Nomadic culture. She studied art in Kazakhstan, the USA and the Netherlands. This versatile upbringing is reflected in her art, which depicts the rich and colourful synergy of exotic Central Asian subjects and western art techniques. To achieve the desired effects she experiments with oil and acrylic painting media, metal leafing and collage. Through her art, both painting and photography, Uriya attempts to arise her cultural identity by appropriating and transforming nomadic traditions.
