'Intimacy' on display at Hugh McPeck Gallery through July 25, 2018

Intimacy June 20-July 25 Hugh McPeck Gallery (Student Union, Second Floor) Gallery hours: Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Artist statement: Intimacy is a show about my personal relationship with the natural world. Nature is the nurturer of both body and soul. Although we have never been able to truly understand its complexity, it has never failed to inspire us, especially in art and literature. Through nature we experience an immediate, intimate relationship with the universe. We use our senses to capture its different aspects through color, shape, texture, smell... which generate a pure response, and connect us closer to the sublimity of the natural world. During the process of painting this body of work my intent was to rediscover myself, with the goal of reaching a higher state of enlightenment in body and soul.
