Miyoshi Barosh is a conceptual artist working in a wide range of materials and processes. She mischievously confronts the structural underpinnings of American culture and refutes ideas about progress, both in the individual psyche as well as in the larger socio-political arena. As our society has increasingly shifted responsibility from society to the individual to create and sustain meaningful lives, we have internalized this societal failure as our own. Historical references and craft processes in combination with digital technologies contradict ideas about progress and technological determinism. Socio-economic questions are raised around ideas about the value of women's labor as well as the art-market value of craftwork itself. Additionally, value becomes a projection of ourselves onto things, like cute animals on the internet, mythic American landscapes, and the built environment. In the end, it is the moral value of objects that is put into question. Through material, process, and text, Barosh makes the art object a manifestation of competing emotions around cultural conceits and identity politics.

Miyoshi Barosh is a Los Angeles-based artist. Her work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami, most recently in BODY CONSCIOUS: Southern California Fiber, at the Craft in America Center, and FEEL BETTER, her second solo show with Luis De Jesus Los Angeles. Other recent exhibitions include Woman, War, and Industry, curated by Amy Galpin at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park, and Size Really Does Matter, curated by Scott Canty at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park. She is a recipient of a 2015 C.O.L.A., City of Los Angeles, Fellowship and was a 2014 Artist-in-Residence at the Pilchuck Glass School.
