Watkins Presents Work by Kellie Bornhoft and Ann Catherine Carter April 18
Fine Art Majors present double BFA exhibition
The three-part Spring 2013 Watkins Fine Art Thesis Exhibition series continues with a double exhibition offering from Bachelor of Fine Art degree candidates Kellie Bornhoft and Ann Catherine Carter, on view April 18-22 in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on the campus of Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. An opening reception will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 18.
Through kinetic and time-based sculpture, Bornhoft explores aspects of entropy within landscape in “Nothing is Unnatural, Everything is Degenerate.” Carter presents paintings and sculpture in “Everyday Tactics,” with a focus on filtering materials, colors, shapes and signs found in current forms of consumer culture and creating alternative relationships and spaces.
BFA in Fine Art
Show title: Nothing is Unnatural, Everything is Degenerate
Statement: The heterogeneity of nature and culture endure the process of entropy as the boundaries between the projected concept of nature merge with the actual content of nature. Bornhoft explores aspects of entropy within our landscape through technology and material
Ann Catherine Carter, Birmingham, AL
BFA in Fine Art
Show title: Everyday Tactics
Statement: Advertising and packaging saturate everyday life. A new form of consumer culture has emerged from attempts to reduce, reuse and recycle. The work attempts to record and filter these elements by engaging and abstracting the materials, colors, symbols and patterns, and hopes to address how we interact with these types of products and create an alternate relationship with them.
