January 22 – Friday January 25, 2013
The Crossley Gallery, Ringling College of Art + Design
Opening Reception: Friday January 25th 2013 from 7:00PM – 9:00PM
Fine Arts majors: Megan Castellon, Jabari Anderson, and Matthew Coombs present new work produced in their fourth year of studies at Ringling College in an exhibition titled “NOW SEE THIS.”
Matthew Coombs creates images that raise questions about abstraction and representation alike. A painter increasingly working in drawing and collage, Coombs is curious about the materiality of negation and conflicting ideas about interpretation and perception.
Jabari Anderson‘s work focuses on emotional intimacy and relationships by utilizing digital film language. She isolates, distorts, and manipulates footage through expressive editing and poetic texts. Her shorts are autobiographical. The motion pictures are intended to act as a catalyst towards self-reflection, while being a window into her internal and external representation of emotion.
Megan Castellon‘s body of work explores the idea of masking affliction to conceal grotesque, and dark imagery with attractive illusions. The textures and intricate patterns are metaphors for feelings of disgust, wonder, and allure of those experiences creating a balance of macabre and elegance.
The exhibition will be on view: Tuesday January 22 through Friday January 25, 2013 from 10AM-4PM with a reception Friday January 25 from 7pm-9pm
