MFA Thesis Exhibition - Dark Forest

Todd Bradford Richmond
“Dark Forest”
January 22 to February 1, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 28, 3-6pm

 

Todd Bradford Richmond makes paintings, installations, films and music compositions. His practice encompasses an ongoing conversation across mediums and employs diverse materials and modes, exchanging language and concepts between genres. His practice draws upon nature, form, composition and the kinetic that is informed by his lifelong interests in painting, music, dance, film, architecture, agriculture and the environment.

Graduate Fine Arts Lecture: Gracie DeVito

Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.
