Jacie Lee Almira

Jacie Lee Almira was born and raised in Queens, New York. Her work explores personal and emotional issues and seeks answers through inquiry using mixed media sculptures, drawing, painting, digital photography and video. Employing pseudo-experimental methods, a holdover from her years of studying biology such as collecting data, repetitive testing, and taxonomy, she analyzes and documents her anxieties, curiosities, memories, fears, and frustrations. The objects she creates are details of her body and mind, and she applies methods that refer to the body itself and to objects that are tangential to it. In her most recent work, Nasaan ka Inay (Where are you, Mommy), she investigates nostalgia of her Filipino heritage in association with the changing dynamic between mother and daughter and the inevitable separation that occurs, emotionally and physically, as both grow older. Ms. Almira exposes her weaknesses, reconciles her choices, and highlights her intimate dramas in order to discover mechanisms and meanings to intangible emotional issues. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts, works in TriBeCa, and has exhibited in galleries in New York City.
