Molly Magai Artist Statement

I make paintings of landscapes dominated by cities, roads, industry, and the living things that inhabit them. These structures, created for human convenience, are very much in conflict with nature. They are also an awe-inspiring human accomplishment, the work of generations of builders and engineers. Most of us ignore these landscapes as we pass by them. My job as a genre painter is to make you see them, in their destructiveness and their beauty.

I make paintings based on snapshots I take from a moving vehicle. Handicapped by the car’s speed, the camera creates inadvertent effects – unexpected colors, halos, and blurs. I’m interested in the sensation of speed, and the way the image is filtered first through the camera, the painter, and the painting. 

“The Banal in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” opens in the Admin. bldg. art gallery Mon., Feb. 8

andrew fallat poster
Through the exploration of kinetic systems and phenomena, Andy Fallat’s work focuses on the condensation of a narrative into an three dimensional object. Building machines and sculptures that are slightly above human scale, he calls attention to our place within a system. Fallat creates creatures and interactive situations with industrial and classically sculptural processes that question our relationships to them and each other.

The work presented in this exhibit is a series of sculptures and low reliefs. They are machines that imitate life. The hope, fear, and complexity that Fallat finds on walks around his neighborhood. It is a shrub as potent as its cousin the mighty spruce. They are lines that become form and patterns that mute shape. It is what happens when two things point to the same mark.
