Art Opening Breaking Form: An Imagined Utopia
Date & Time
Fri, Feb 7 6:00PM
Location
Coffman Memorial Union, Coffman Art Gallery
Description

Art allows for the physical world to be broken, and instead creates layers of exploration that expose human experiences. Abstraction is seen as a way of connection and discovery. The artists Preston Yates Drum and Kayleigh Fichten choose to interrupt our conventional realm in order to construct an emblematic and thought-provoking world.

Preston uses everyday imagery to inspire others to question their world and consider their options for forming a better place. Kayleigh uses source imagery from National Geographic Magazines to create layered compositions that highlight a utopia as a personal experience in order to question the idea of how a place can be represented. Together, these two artists unify to challenge the social order, Breaking Form: An Imagined Utopia.
