UCF 2014 MFA Thesis Exhibition
Visual Arts Building (VAB)
Greetings! Please join the University of Central Florida Art Gallery at our opening reception of "Down the Rabbit Hole" March 13, 6-8PM. We are proud to present an exhibition of works by the Master of Fine Art Candidates, Shelly Bradon, Stephanie Cafcules, David Dannelly, Emilie Finney, Jay Flynn, Samuel Jimenez, and Ivan Riascos who will present a visual story of their journey which they describe as a "chaotic descent into the psyche culminating in discovery." For more information about the show, please visit: Gallery Website: http://gallery.cah.ucf.edu/ Opening Reception to be held: Thursday, March 13 - 6PM-8PM Exhibit Dates: March 6 - March 21, 2014 A little bit about the artists: Shelly Bradon's mixed media is a reflection on the victories and struggles of an 8 year old girl with physical disabilities. Stephanie Cafcules's work is influenced by both art history and nature and reflects a process of transforming synthetic materials either physically or chemically. David Dannelly's series of short narrative animations use philosophy, theology and media theory to analyze and critique popular media culture. According to Emilie Finney, her work reflects how "language defines meaning - and meaning defines intent." Jay Flynn likes to challenge the expectations of the viewer by using a combination of contemporary and historical photography with sculpture. Samuel Jimenez recreates scenes from his past that reflect the ambiguous nature of memory. Ivan Riascos uses photographic and sculptural icons to re-invent biblical scriptures that reflect his personal struggles with his Catholic upbringing. Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter and Entertainer, John Lazar will be performing at the reception March 13, 6-8pm
