Honors Undergraduate Exhibition: Habitual Action, J Gray Swartzel, Georgia Titcomb, Anthony Hamilton
April 21, 2014 @ 8:00 am - May 11, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
Opening Reception: 23 April 2014, 6:15-8:15 pm
Habitual Action is the culmination of the three honors studio art students, J Gray Swartzel, Georgia Titcomb, and Anthony Hamilton, on exhibit at the Alcott Gallery on UNC’s Campus.
This show will include photos from J Gray Swartzel’s Blood Harmony. The work examines matrilineal power and developed out of the themes of love, vulnerability, and the spectrum of gender performance. Blood Harmony’s photographic and conceptual investigation has helped me to see that my existence has the capacity to encompass a lived political identity in which my purpose is to visually articulate my position as a queer activist through image making.
Georgia’s work is driven by her ambition to bring together the worlds of art and science to stimulate a complementary creativity where science inspires art, and art inspires scientific investigation. Her thesis work, The Folds of β-Amyloid, is an imaginative exploration of several aspects of the protein responsible for Alzheimer’s disease, from its amino acid sequence to its folding pattern and destructive impact on the brain.
Anthony Hamilton’s paintings come from a daily practice of painting. The exhibition will include work from his thesis Permission to Paint which started with a strict regimen of making a painting a day and then evolved in to an extended practice in reaction to this. His paintings explore an iterative process that takes everyday things to abstract paintings.
