Lorna Samara Ash: Biography

 

Lorna Samara Ash is an interdisciplinary artist that works across mediums (photo, sound, video, sculpture, installation, performance, & painting) to depict scenarios where futile idolatry - extreme admiration - of notions­­, objects, and entities led to disillusionment.

In her new series, Ash visually researches its counter pursuit - the search of a higher power - and portrays the effects of this quest in people’s mental, spiritual, sentimental, and social development. 

Ash has been part of numerous exhibitions including Arteamericas Fair, Sagamore The Art Hotel, Freedom Tower, The Cricket Taplin Art Collection, Daniel Azoulay Gallery, Soho Studios Wynwood, Photo Miami Art Fair, Broward-County Public Library, Siggraph: Los Angeles, CA, Finger Lakes GrassRoots of Music & Dance, and Locust Projects: Smash & Grab Exhibits, among others.

Ash is a graduate of University of Florida thru New World School of the Arts where she earned a Dual BFA in Painting and Electronic Intermedia along with a Minor in Art History.
