Show Information Disjointed Realities: Works by IU Painting MFAs

Show Date February 6 – February 27

Show Description Indiana University’s graduate painting students present: Disjointed Realities

In this age of image and information saturation, the depth and value of experience is often exchanged for a one-­dimensional existence. There is a premium set on how many connections a person possesses, and on visibility, but not necessarily on substance. This imbalance begs the question of whether the connections we make between ourselves and our surrounding world are meaningful, or are just replacements for what is truly genuine. The immediacy and abundance of information causes images and attitudes to converge in unexpected ways, and leads to a reality filled with connections that are often flawed and disjointed.

The Indiana University MFA Painting candidates are interested in exploring the gaps in relationships, comprehension, and experiences that are a result of these disjointed realities. Ours is a world perceived in fragments. It can lead to mistrust or apprehension, but it can also lead to humor and fulfillment, and occasionally to sublime inspiration.

Royale Hair Salon


Kathy believes in “the spirit of place.”  This spirit inhabits many of the pictures she has painted outdoors,

or created indoors from photographs taken on location.  Kathy enjoys painting and photographing

landscapes.  Sometimes the photographs are works of art themselves, and sometimes they are

reference points for details to finish a “plein air” work.



Craig produces images that take you to the place in the photograph.   The impact is real but subtle

suggestions in the work allow you to interact with the image many times in an evening, or for years.

Pictures too can become “good friends” that stay with you over time.
