MATT CURLEY - Honors in Art: Painting
April 8 - April 18, 2013
Reception: Wednesday, April 10, 6 pm
Matt Curley’s paintings use abstraction as a means of indirectly referencing colors and forms that can be found in sources such as landscape and architecture. Curley states that: “Although the paintings are mostly comprised of geometric shapes, I find that this improvisational process allows me to retain a more painterly quality, capturing texture that is built up over time. Each painting becomes a sum of its multiple versions and rearrangements.”
Honors in Art: Design
April 22 – May 2, 2013
Reception: Wednesday, April 24, 6 pm
Michael Maloney experiments with many facets of design and attempts to push the limit as to what can be done when it comes to message content and language. His interest lies in portraying information in unexpected ways that both appeal to and engage the viewer. “My intent is to make powerful visual designs that get viewers to think about how we perceive information.”
