Fort Worth Contemporary Arts
January 26th, from 1-2:30pm
The Art Galleries at TCU presents the 2019 MFA Candidacy Exhibition, featuring the work of TCU’s second year Masters of Fine Arts candidates; Francisco Josue Alvarado Araujo, Dario S Bucheli, Sierra Forester, and Hector Ramirez. The exhibition will be on-view from January 18th through February 16th, with artist talks on Saturday, January 26th at 1pm.
The 2019 MFA Candidacy Exhibition brings together the work of TCU – Texas Christian University’s second year MFA students. This exhibition is the culmination of their first half of graduate school and shows the direction in which their individual art practices are heading. Explore what they have been creating in their studios and the topics that propel their processes.
Francisco Josue Alvarado Araujo’s work involves the configuration of found, cast and otherwise acquired objects, placed in situations that emphasize the contingency between them. Drawing on the physical characteristics, design and previous function of the objects results in illogical and comically precarious structures.
Dario S Bucheli’s work examines the features and formal qualities of image editing software by taking digital tools out of their original context and reinterpreting them through oil painting. In this way, the computer software becomes a strong formal and conceptual influence throughout Bucheli’s process.
Sierra Forester works through a variety of mediums, including found-object sculpture, drawing, painting, and site-specific acts. Her poetic and ephemeral works explore liminality and in particular, the ambiguous qualities of language and time.
Hector Ramirez’s practice takes on the vernacular of architectural finishes where he grew up. This presents itself in an informal style while maintaining an earnest attitude toward ideas, events and memories of his experiences. Ramirez’s objects then become residual artifacts reflecting traditions of his home.
