Peripheral ARTeries

(USA) an artist's statement

Tiff Graham (Ti Gra) is a visual artist/ethnographer/cultural specialist whose art work combines photography, digital illustration, mixed media, and videography. Her artwork is often a diversion and catharsis from her back pain; as well as a way to present her field research on festive events/foodways/folk beliefs/material culture. She is inspired by artists whose work suggests a narrative, or a curious humorous interpretation of the world. Various traditional folk art aesthetics influence her work too. Professionally, Ti Gra teaches at Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles, California creating courses that emphasize ethnographic fieldwork, cultural critique, visual media, and technology.
