Southern Fried Queer Pride/SFQP Artist Talks are a new series of talks and workshops featuring local Atlanta artists sharing their work, experiences, and insight!
GET TO KNOW: Saiel Solomon
About her work: "I've become obsessed with documenting my individual growth and internal travel, with death and time, with what it truly means to understand and perceive. I've also become obsessed with the connection within the patterns that make any of this matter in the first place. Most of my works are conversations I have with myself; others are conversations I want to influence. My intention is to be sharp and precise but vague enough to allow room for movement within the idea. I'm focused on honesty and becoming as clear as I can possibly be. But that's been like digging to the center of the earth with no tools or experience. or maybe its been more like digging up and out from the center of the earth with no tools or experience."
Saiel will be discussing her work, and her experience as a working professional.. Feel free to bring your portfolio/CV to this event.
The talk happens at 6PM on Thursday, May 9th at the Atlanta Contemporary (535 Means Street Northwest Atlanta, GA 30318).
