The gallery says:

"Influenced by her own personal history and artists as diverse as Laszlo Moholy ­Nagy and Gerhard Richter, Mamiye employs intricate and labor-­intensive processes to challenge what is expected of the photographic medium. Culling photographs from social media, Mamiye transforms the plenitude of public images into richly layered works that hint at a life lived between screens. With a playful yet mordant humor, Mamiye creates pieces packed with art historical depth and pop cultural abundance.''

Her work uses photography, video and digital imaging techniques. "With light, color and movement, she blurs distinctions between physical and virtual reality.''
