The University of Arkansas Department of Art is pleased to announce Noise., the MFA Thesis Exhibition of Laura Polaski. The exhibition will be on display from April 16 – 26, 2015 in the Fine Arts Center Gallery. The Department of Art will host a reception on Friday, April 24th at 5:30pm in the Fine Arts Center Gallery.
Noise. considers the interruption of fear and trauma on individuals during their pursuit of pleasure and excitement. By utilizing the physicality of materials to reflect human figures, emotions, and the vulnerability of living things, Polaski’s drawings and sculp- tures capture the effects of struggle. Artwork featured in the exhibition strives to conjure the subjectivity of experienced emotions. Textures, colors, and materials are exploited to create an environment where the viewer simultaneously experiences serenity and violence, as well as delight and grief.
