Muzi Li Rowe
Muzi Li Rowe is a visual artist and photographer. Rowe is best known for her optical assemblages of obsolete technology and photographs made using them. She works with the physical elements of camera, observing photography through its own medium. Often combining analog cameras, historical processing methods and contemporary subjects in her processes, she reflects the significance of practicing analog media in the current Digital Age.
Born and raised in Beijing, China, Rowe has lived in between Beijing, Sydney, Hawaii and California since the age of 17. She received a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University of Sydney, Australia and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of California Davis. Rowe has exhibited in the US, China and Australia, at venues including Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, CA; Carriage Works, Sydney, Australia; and Bronze Ware Museum, Ordos, China. Rowe currently resides in Sacramento, California.
