An exhibit by Joseph Turek comprised of works created by painting atop wax that is then melted away is currently on display in the Biblio Gallery on the 4th floor of Bird Library. Turek is an MFA candidate in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University.
In describing the exhibition, Turek says:
Patterns of habit, routine, or schedules form trust. What happens when this breaks down? What does it look like when the cogs are not aligned? The hope for this work is that there is novelty to this experience of breakdown. The technique is unusual, and is deliberately against the original intention for the paint. The result yields conceptual and formal implications for the medium of paint and the image.
The exhibit will be on display through the end of December.
