Blot: Reinterpreting the Rorschach exhibition went up last week in the Mendenhall student gallery.
ECU metal design graduate students were invited to collaborate with the printmaking area and Indiana University’s metals department to make work interpreting the ink blot.
I really enjoyed this exhibition and the idea behind it, all of the pieces are so different and interesting, especially Aaron Earley's sculpture and painting.
Aaron just graduated from ECU with a BFA in sculpture and painting/drawing. The painting above is very deep and fascinating, the forms on each side are of a skeleton reaching out. Aaron has several more of these interpretive paintings on his website.
And below are several pieces by the metal graduate students, the red hen and lady with her arms up are Leia Zumbro's and I'm not sure who did the angels, but it's very pretty.
The reception for the exhibition will be on Friday, February 18th in the ECU Mendenhall student gallery, come check it out if you're in town.
