Aisha Ullius is receiving her BA in Art Education and Art Therapy. Ullius demonstrates her understanding of media by teaching “try-it” ceramic, drawing, and metals courses at the Peninsula School of Arts in Door County, Wisconsin. Aside from teaching art, Ullius’s work was recently included in the University Museum, Carbondale, Illinois, for the Forge, Form, Fabricate Exhibition, along with a solo show Unexpected at the Wisconsin University, UW Oshkosh extension in Fond du lac. Ullius is currently completing her student teaching semester for art education at two elementary schools located in Fond du lac, Wisconsin.
Aisha Ullius’s work revolves around nostalgia, comfort, illusion, and play. Ranging from warped foods to textiles, Ullius manipulates materials into convincing visual experiences. She exploits the human desire for food, as her work lures the audience in before revealing a repulsive truth. In her exploration of consumption, Ullius questions how junk food may affect the body and how food makes the body feel a sense of comfort.
