A Bloom is A Blur, a two-person show with art by Eames Armstrong and Matt Storm, engages with concepts of blur. A blur happens in action- neither a start, an end, nor a linear journey. A blur is an expanse of possibility. A blur can undo boundaries, and provide space for growth, change, and in-betweenness to be recognized and celebrated. This show mines the generative value of liminality itself.
Eames Armstrong will be showing paintings and Matt Storm will be showing photographs.
Eames Armstrong (they/she) is an interdisciplinary artist working in curatorial practice, painting, performance, and sound. Eames received an MFA from the George Washington University in 2016 with the Morris Louis Endowment Fellowship. Eames collaborates frequently with artists across the visual and performing arts. Eames was the 2016 Emerging Curator at VisArts in Rockville, MD, and a participant of the 2016 pilot program of the Halcyon Arts Lab Fellowship in DC. With their collective Queer Trash, Eames was the 2018 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow at ISSUE Project Room in Brooklyn. Formerly based in DC, Eames is now in NYC.
Matt Storm (he) is a photo-based artist, making photographs, installations and sculptures in Washington, DC. Storm’s work engages with the theme of identity, and the question “who are we, and how do we know?” Storm majored in Studio Art at Dartmouth College, and received the Perspectives on Design Award. Storm is in the incoming class of artists at STABLE Arts in DC. Storm serves on the leadership team of the LGBTQ Caucus of the Society for Photographic Education. Storm is very engaged in DC’s transgender community, and just curated a large art show of local artists from the community.
