Irene Mamiye is a New York-based artist who incorporates various digital imaging techniques into her photography and video work. Inspired by light, color and movement, her work explores the intricate relationship between her complex personal history, the camera’s unique relation to reality, and the visionary possibilities of digital imaging. Influenced by artists as diverse as Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Gerhard Richter, she employs a precise and labor-intensive process to transcend what is expected of the photographic medium. The luminous images harness chance to transform their sources and involve viewers in journeys toward a personal discovery of significance.

Mamiye’s recent work brings together institutional critique, mordant humor and the most advanced digital imaging techniques. These video and video-derived works build on more than a decade of the artist’s investigations of the relation between conventional photography and digital technology. Mamiye’s extensive body of digital images, as well as her digitally derived designs for furniture, have been widely exhibited in locations across the United States.  Her work was included in the landmark exhibition The Edge of Vision (2009), mounted by the Aperture Foundation and in the Museum of Art and Design’s Multiple Exposures (2014).  Her work has also appeared at numerous art fairs and is included in many private collections.
