Towson University’s College of Fine Arts and Communication and The Department of Art + Design present Three Master of Fine Arts Exhibitions, Friday, February 7 through Saturday, May 10 in the Holtzman MFA Gallery located in the Center for the Arts at the corner of Osler and Cross Campus Drive. The exhibitions feature the work of Zeke Luman, David Armacost and Claire Girodie.
David Armacost: medium-long
Armacost presents a collection of paintings, which fervently adhere to a singular image. Using repetition and a simplified approach to materials and application, Armacost lays bare a narrative of obsession, desire, and dedicated pursuit of the artist’s personal mythology. A ritualized and performative practice yields an accumulation of illuminated objects infused with focused devotion and earnest appeal.
Claire Girodie: Argument from Silence
Girodie engages the simplest and the most traditional materials in intimate conversations and transcribes their unspoken stories. With paper, linen, ink or thread, Girodie’s drawings evoke landscapes, figures or calligraphies, occasionally escaping their two-dimensional forms to become sculptures and installations. They stay silent, using their own shadows to speak louder— psychological landscapes waiting to be heard.
Zeke Luman: Erdlebenbildkunst
Luman’s work is a deconstructivist examination of the idea of nature, investigating the role of nature within contemporary society through a consideration of its many elements. He explores the relationship between actual nature and man-made artificial representations of nature, observing the primal human need to be within nature while simultaneously desiring to control—and—ultimately, destroy it.
The opening reception is Thursday, February 6, 7:30 – 9 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The exhibitions are closed for Spring Break March 15 – 23, 2014.
