explores the ways in which a group of UT Artists and Designers express conflict and contradiction.
From the self-portraits of Van Gogh to the silhouettes of Kara Walker, identity issues have been an ever-present subject matter in art. Taking that thought as a point of departure, the exhibition developed around the broader motif of conflict: internal and external. For some of the artists it is translated as a product of very personal dilemas, for others it is merely a comment on society.
Ray Delgadillo began tying together a selection of work from colleagues after noting their very different aesthetics yet reocurring themes. A variety of media are represented, including digital illustration, photography, painting, sculpture, and serigraphy, and the artists are both graduate and undergraduate.
