Statement

Ema Harris-Sintamarian is an artist originally from Romania whose work is informed by the relationship of her identity to her sense of displacement, and the ways she has devised to reconcile these incongruous elements. Her intricate yet expansive drawings tackle the dichotomy between containment and liberation by infusing a static diagram with a charge that propels it into motion.  Harris-Sintamarian is represented by Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco, and her work has also been shown in New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Sweden, France, Canada, Austria, Italy and Romania.  She is the recipient of the 2013 Eureka Fellowship/ Fleishhacker Foundationthe, the 2010 Silicon Valley Arts Council Award 2008 ArtShift Award and has participated in the residency programs at the Djerassi, Vermont Studio Center and San Jose ICA.  She received an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Delaware and an MFA in Painting from San Jose Sate University.  She is an Adjunct Instructor at San Jose State University and San Jose City College.
