Write-ups on the work of Naomi Fisher '98 (photography) now showing at Miami's Vizcaya Museum and Gardens appeared in both Artforum and the New York Times' T Magazine.

Artforum asked the Miami native to describe her latest video and installation, Jungle Sweat, Roseate, a site-specific work commissioned by the museum as part of its Contemporary Arts Project. The blog post was part of the outlet's 500 Words column, in which artists talk about their work in their own words and voice.

"While I was in school at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, I frequently found myself thinking, 'Wow, there are a lot of brick row houses here, like the kind you'd see on TV--neat.' For me, conventional Northeast architecture was like the other, whereas for nearly everyone else, it seemed, the tropics were the other. So I had very different ideas than most of my friends about what is wild, what is natural, and what is primitive," Fisher wrote.

The artist's work was also featured in the New York Times' T Magazine, where Fisher was profiled alongside artist Jim Drain as "Miami's ‘It' Couple." Together, the couple wrote about their current work and projects, including managing the Bas Fisher Invitational gallery, as well as some of their top picks for Art Basel.
