B.A. Senior Art Exhibitions
Kari Darr’s ceramic exhibition, SPACE//CRAFT, playfully explores the spiritual implications of searching for cosmic truth through space exploration. These functional porcelain vessels invite the viewer to explore the work and project themselves onto an anonymous astronaut engaged in scenes of everyday life and space travel. By combining retrofuturism and Space Age aesthetics, SPACE//CRAFT portrays a fantastical image of yesterday’s tomorrow.
The sculptural and functional ceramic work in Jacob Jimerson’s exhibition, AnUnquiet and Uncanny Earth, deconstructs different perceptions of nature, humanity, and the relationship between the two by juxtaposing imagery, form, surface, materiality, and process. In doing so, his art speaks to the physical and philosophical systems that connect the human and the natural, encouraging viewers to appreciate how the physical qualities of materials influence and enrich the world we inhabit.
Lauren Muskara’s exhibition, Muskara et al. (2020), focuses on developing artworks that blurs the division between the fields of art and science. Comprised of large, realistic and minimalist-inspired paintings aimed at amplifying the molecular components of objects, this series questions the connections between scientific exploration and the expressive, conceptual aims of art.
