CHRISTOPHER E. MANNING
Everything, As Perfect As It Seems
Everything As Perfect As It Seems explores the inherent duality of the exterior surface and the process of excavation towards the inner self through painting, drawing, collage, photography and sculpture in tandem. Each work presents a teetering balance between memory and the forgotten, truths and lies, light and dark, and all passages between life, death and rebirth. The cumulative narrative comes to represent a portrait of what shapes us, while embodying the deluge of all that was forgotten or superfluous to existence.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 12 – SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17
An end-of-term celebration of student talent and creativity, the Student Show reflects both student accomplishments and faculty dedication.

Exploring the historical conceit of painting as a metaphorical window, Powell focuses on the experience of containment. When trapped in a room, what images does one idealize? He offers up elements of escape and obstructs these subjects with bold colorful lines or “blinds,” creating feelings of lost hope and suppression, all the while forming a veil or curtain over these painted “windows”. In each work, geometric abstraction and realistic depictions synthesize moments of distinction and blurring, denying the viewer a complete grasp of either.

CHARLES McGILL: SKELETONS
Reception: Thursday, January 30, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Charles McGill’s work merges a passion for golf with a more conceptual understanding of found object. Joe Lewis of Art in America writes that “the work discovers new conceptual mass in the well-worn territories of race and representation,” and his work has been compared to some of the most influential artists of the last fifty years. “When a traditional golf bag is incorporated into art,” says the artist, “America’s very bumpy history with racism is an inevitability.”
