The multimedia artist Uman made a splash on the New York scene when she had her first solo show at White Columns in September 2015, followed quickly - maybe a little too quickly - by a second show three months later at Louis B. James on the Lower East Side. Her third show, "I Will Sit Here and Wait for You" at Fierman, overseen by David Fierman, a former partner at James, is smaller than its predecessors - four paintings and two sculptures. But it serves to keep in sight a truly gifted self-taught artist who was born in Somalia, raised in Kenya and came to the United States in 2004.
