An exhibition of Kartz Ucci’s work will run from Aug. 31 to Oct. 2, with the opening night artist reception in the Miller Fine Art Gallery from 6-8 p.m.
Ucci’s work is produced with the medium that best conveys its conceptual content and is actualized through light, sound, video, performance, photography and text.
A central metaphor is the location of desire and the pursuit of happiness, and she has an unabashed interest in the romantic. Language theory and philosophy inform her creative approach and her subject matter is often determined by her physical surroundings.
Ucci’s work has been exhibited in Europe, Asia and North America. She also works in independent film production. Upcoming exhibitions include OPTICA in Canada and Portland 2010. Ucci teaches art at the University of Oregon.
