A Thesis Exhibition by Aubrey Roemer
March 4 – 8
March 4, 5 – 8 pm
In the wake of death, destruction, or loss, one enters grieving through what is known as a “shock and denial period”. This immersive environmental installation explores this shock period through painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture on upcycled materials and fabric. Referencing Pompeii’s “Villa of Mysteries”, the work also interprets ideals of the feminine and the ancient through a contemporary lens. Hunt or be hunted, take shelter or make shelter. Obliteration, proliferation, and repetition are shown as methods of articulating human fecundity and destruction.
