The Sarofim School of Fine Arts’ Studio Art Department is thrilled to announce the first Senior art exhibition of the 2018/2019 season, featuring the works of Katlyn Hellmer.

Katlyn Hellmer’s painting and photography series Indices in Ultramarine examines contemporary art’s relationship with the environment and the ways in which an artwork’s time, location, or placement within various spaces may determine how it is perceived. Through a carefully designed process, each painting’s final pattern is created by impressing the wet paintings onto the ground at various locations.Through this, she questions whether a change in an artwork’s lighting, formal display, or spacing, or even the audience’s socio-economic class, religious or educational identity may determine an artwork’s reception as a profound work of art.

 

Join the Art Department for a gallery reception from 5:00-6:30pm on December 6th, at which Katlyn Hellmer will present an artist’s talk with fellow presenting senior, Jennifer Pangelinan!
