February 27 – March 2, 2012
Ringling College of Art and Design
Opening: Monday, February 27th
Closing Reception: Friday, March 2nd, 5-8 PM
The Crossley Gallery is pleased to exhibit a selection of sculptures by Fine Art Seniors Kyle Petreycik and Sean Pearson. This exhibition serves as an undergraduate thesis exhibition that reflects each artist’s development in the past months in terms of artistic practice with a focus on sculptural works. Attention to materials, spatial relationships as well as ideas of escape serve as a common conceptual thread between both artists’ work.
Kyle Petreycik (b. 1989, Fairfield, Connecticut.) Kyle works by developing assemblages through a series of small gestures. He celebrates each material and its individual ambience by way of slight manipulations. In using simple elements of woodworking and snapshot photography, he attempts to reference his conscious and unconscious relationship to high and low-end commercial appeal.
Sean Pearson (b. 1989, Bremerton, Washington.) Sean’s practice is driven by responding to objects in a way that brings about a new potential meaning. He will be showing mixed media sculptures that are object based with an emphasis on manipulation. The current mediums that Sean has been employing within his practice include the use of glass casting, woodworking and other physical labor based processes.
