Enjoy the opening night of “It will never become quite familiar to you” at Oolite Arts on Wednesday, July 17th from 7-9pm. Guests will experience an Opening Reception + Artist Open Studios + Alumni Grant drawing. The reception will be held alongside artist open studios, a quarterly event where art lovers can meet the resident artists in their workspaces and learn about their practice. Light bites and drinks will be served. Curated by Angelica Arbelaez. About the Exhibition: Through an exploration of intimate spaces and histories, eight artists investigate life with dual-heritage––having an identity in two places, a complicated relationship to each, and a longing for familiarity to both. With identities rooted in the United States and the global south, the artists manifest the nuances of intersectional identity in a series of deeply personal works creating collective meaning through empathy. This event is FREE and Open to the Public, RSVP here.

“My artwork is a sardonic narrative of human existence. Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is uniquely assembled piece by piece, bringing its character to life. Their bodies are built around stylized skeletal structures, focusing on the framework of our being. The figures are mutually faceless, symbolizing our kinship as human beings through the shared struggles of our endeavors. My sculptures chronicle life experiences, each driven by different desires but similarly seeking a correct modus operandi to fulfill their own aspirations, if there even is one.”
Ian Fichman was born in Miami, Florida in 1978. With an outlook that defies the familiar, Ian renounces the regularly scheduled program. He has always been a weirdo. During his years at Florida State University, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Studio Art in 2002, he was introduced to metalwork. Given the freedom to explore the possibilities of the medium, Ian found fulfillment working with his hands.
In 2010, after a brief venture into the digital arts, he returned to sculpture. Joining the program at San Diego State University, Ian gained unlimited access to the sculpture lab where he worked as a technician. It was there that he began to fine-tune the style and techniques that have made his work what it is today. Returning to his hometown, Ian set up shop at Studio #1 in the Bakehouse Art Complex in Wynwood. Committed to creating, he works full time in his practice to expand his portfolio, while searching for opportunities to increase the reach of his work.
You can find Fichman and his series of uniquely assembled, one-of-a-kind art pieces at the Bakehouse Art Complex in Studios #1 & #12 located in the Wynwood Arts District at 561 NW 32nd Street in Miami, Florida 33127. www.ianfichman.com
