MFA student work accepted into the Southern Printmaking Biennale VI International Exhibition
Tuscaloosa, Alabama- Kyle Clark, a first year Master of Fine Arts student in the Book Arts program at the University of Alabama, had his work accepted into the Southern Printmaking Biennale VI International Exhibition at the University of North Georgia.
The juried exhibition, which is sponsored by the UNG Department of Visual Art, accepts innovative works in all printmaking media including monotypes, large-scale and three-dimensional prints from professional artist around the world.
His wood cut entitled, “Ossemonumentum,” was printed on fine Japanese gampi fiber paper and is a continuation of his recent works that incorporate abstracted human skeletons in various groupings and densities.
“This specific print was created while listening to initial reports coming in about the ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) invasion of Iraq and their impact on minority groups including the Yazidi and Christians living within Iraq’s borders,” said Clark.
While this print is not a direct response to the ISIS invasion, the current events in Iraq and Syria did have strong influences in its creation.
“Ossemonumentum” will be on display at the University of North Georgia from November 10th to December 12th.
