Visual Arts Center says
Amy Hauft, Studio Art Graduate Advisor and Leslie Waggener Professor in Sculpture in the Department of Art and Art History, will moderate in-depth conversations over the course of two nights with the graduating artists whose work is presented in the 2015 Studio Art MFA Thesis Exhibition.

This evening will feature the following artists:

Peter Abrami (Florida) paints colorful abstract paintings that teeter on the edge of anthropomorphism. A single form—is it emblem or subject?—flips between formalism and character atop each painting’s colorful matte ground.

Nick Francel (Missouri) invents stylized cartoony characters that exist in an immersive built environment into which the viewer can step. Upon entering his “game board” room, the viewer encounters game-piece characters, menacing trees and other clues. The game’s past and future narrative are represented in images on the room’s exterior walls.

Aaron Meyers (Pennsylvania) builds an architectural installation in which his to-scale fragment of the French visionary architect, Étienne-Louis Boullée’s Cenotaph for Sir Isaac Newton, creates a mash-up intersection with the VAC. Raised to the same level of grandeur and paired with the fragment is a rodent exercise wheel. His attention to detail allows the viewer, mouse or human, a glimpse of the infinite.

Presented in conjunction with the 2015 Studio Art MFA Thesis Exhibition, on view April 17 – May 16
