FLESH OUT: MFA THESIS EXHIBITION
March 23 – April 6, 2018Opening Reception: March 23, 5-7 PM3715 Central Ave.230 and 240 Art & Communication Bldg.
Sculptures and installation by Lacy Mitcham center on the repulsive and attractive qualities of the human body, reflecting her studies of psychological and physical maladies. The intangible nature of human connection is conveyed through the metaphor of social interaction in the watercolors of Kelly Cook. Ellen Dempsey’s furniture sculptures, infused with humor, utilize quotidian objects to emphasize discarded or overlooked properties. Jennalyn Krulish’s paintings of ecological relationships share specific knowledge about human involvement in the biosphere. Painter Bienvenido Howard deals with the liminal space between the viewer and portraiture. His work echoes the undergirding theme of Flesh Out, which expresses how artistic works exemplify a process of continual growth.
