Exhibition Description

Curated by Danielle Mysliwiec and Natalie Campbell New Ruins explores the tactile, perceptual, and temporal dimensions of surface and form among a resonant grouping of abstract works. Physical processes such as rubbing, layering, building, wearing away and, on occasion, obliterating, combine to offer an alternative to the traditional painter's mark, altering perception of time and presence. Materials such as bronze, marble, plaster, stone, metal, clay and wood are used to expand the language of painting and its traditional viewing modes. New Ruins feature works by N. Dash, Jessica Dickinson, Donald Moffett, Sam Moyer, Nathlie Provosty, and Brie Ruais. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the AU Studio Art Department.
