MFA Book Arts/Printmaking 2013 Thesis Exhibit III

Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery

Exhibit features thesis work by graduating MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking students Jenn Pascoe, Mou Zhu, Kunyoung Chang and Charissa Schulze.

Jenn Pascoe uses a wide range of media to show the presence of physical bodies and the mental and social spaces they inhabit. Through his installation, Mou Zhu explores the idea of Gui, which stands for both the turtle and the idea of return or reincarnation. Kunyoung Chang illuminates unnoticed elements in our surroundings by creating books and installations. Things normally not considered take on a presence, suggesting something subtle and ineffable within the rational and logical contemporary world. Charissa Schulze works with paper, ink and early photographic processes investigating the interplay of beauty, time and loss through the manipulation and heightened impermanence of her materials.

Closing Reception: May 10, 5:30 - 8 p.m.

"This group of Book Arts and Printmaking students employ a surprisingly wide range of approaches, from sculpture to video; textiles to social practice; and etching to street art. The connective tissue in this exhibition is their rigorous exploration of the expressive potential of materials. It offers an exciting glimpse into the future of Book Arts."
