an exhibition of multi-media works by senior Ugo Udogwu
The Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Visual Arts presents color│ed, an exhibition of multi-media works by Ugo Udogwu, a senior in the program, on April 30 through May 4 in the Lucas Gallery at 185 Nassau Street. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, May 2 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Exhibition hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
color │ed explores the continued manipulation of line in space through the use of soft lines created with string and rope. This idea is investigated through a range of work in the exhibition, including forms wrapped in twine and painted, boards wrapped in twine that are then used to make prints, wooden grids wrapped in yarn with wax poured into the negative spaces, and clothesline crocheted into forms.
“Within this realm of lines in space,” notes Udogwu, “I became interested in imagery and how it is created and manipulated by the lens through which we perceive it. This ‘lens’ can be anything from a physical object that stands in front of something else to the attributed color of a perceived object.” She explains the work is an exploration of, “the agency of form, formlessness, color, and colorlessness within the realm of line and space and how the manipulation of those factors informs how one understands their relationship, as well as our relationship to them, ourselves, and each other.”
Udogwu is completing a degree in the Department of Art and Archeology with a concentration in studio work, while also pursuing a track in pre-med. She has participated in an early entrance program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai in New York while completing her undergraduate studies.
