"In wistful limbo" Herron School of Art and Design BFA Painting Thesis Exhibition

Paintings by Brittany Eaton and Chad Waples

Opening Reception:
Friday, April 2nd 6-10 pm
Available by appointment through April 6th

Senior painters from Herron School of Art, Brittany Eaton and Chad Waples, will be exhibiting their work during April's First Friday Gallery Walk. The work will be shown in a unique space in Fountain Square, located a short walk down Prospect Street from the Murphy Building and many exciting galleries.

Brittany Eaton's paintings concentrate on the disconnect between the intrinsic struggle that nature endures and the heedless sentimentality that is forced onto it. The distortion of nature into patterns and objects of decoration along with kitsch, environmental issues, old wildlife encyclopedias and her neighborhood of Fountain Square are all integral influences on her work.

The current body of work by Chad Waples consists of a personal reflection on theological and metaphysical studies consistent among several religions and philosophies that include; Buddhism, Hinduism, Pagan symbolism, Judeo Christian metaphors, Gnosticism, Biblical symbolism, dream symbolism, and mystical interpretations.

Special Thanks to David Eskenazi and Sandor Development
