Mary Quin MFA Thesis Exhibition

There is a space between what we feel and what we see that can easily go unnoticed.  Liminal in nature, it is that threshold of sense experience just between feeling something and feeling nothing at all.  Often our true inner sense of family relationships is a word or breath away, elusively floating somewhere in the ether of our experience—slightly beyond articulation of our feelings and often detached from what we expect to experience.   By apposing family members, juxtaposing relationships, both real and imagined, and incorporating reflective surfaces, I seek to explore the psychological complexities of visually portraying non-physical space.  In this space, I believe, can be found the constant divide between the way two family members see a situation or each other.  With my imagery, I strive to recognize and acknowledge the infinite substance that fills the empty space within one or between two family members.

Josiah Paris MFA Thesis Exhibition

For the past two years I have been photographing after the sun has set, looking at unnatural light and areas which would be dark without mankind’s intervention. I work to show how tungsten and fluorescent light has transformed the space, and how compared to the day, it creates a very different scene. The photographs which compile the project “Enlightened” are not meant to be menacing but work to show the cracks I have found in mankind’s endless efforts to fill in every shadow.  There are obvious limitations to man made lights, and my photographs show where their light ends; the edge of darkness.

Jon Brown MFA Thesis Exhibition

A thesis exhibition of imagery and sculpture by SCAD MFA student, Jon Brown, will be on display at the Mr. Beast Gallery from May 19–25. The opening reception will be on Friday, May 20th from 6–9 pm. Public welcome.

Brown will be exhibiting work from his Ruminate series. According to the artist,

Ruminate is a visual exploration of finding balance between opposing forces. The imagery originates from photographs of pigment suspended in water. These free-flowing organic forms are captured and manipulated digitally, laser cut into acrylic, inked and run through a press. This process yields itself to the unexpected. Complimenting these inked pieces are wooden boxes carefully constructed using precise measurement, engineering, and rigid lines to achieve an anticipated effect.
This relationship between the unexpected and the expected, the natural and cultural, and the organic and rigid, influences my work. The works that comprise Rumination are a tangible signifier of how I balance these forces as an artist and in life more generally.
It is upon this precept that through the adequate balance of the unexpected and expected, harmony can reside in life and art.

The Mr. Beast Gallery is located at 1522 Bull Street in Savannah, GA. Gallery hours are Monday–Friday from 2–6 pm.

For more information, feel free to contact the artist at 801-368-4554 or
