Jase Flannery and Laura Bradigan, Summer 2009 BFA graduates from Ohio State University, are confronting problems and finding beauty in the intermediate. Bradigan acts on chance stains and leftover traces with a sensitive presence of progressive gradation and tone. Flannery articulates his work with calculated process and repetition defined by motions to and away from equilibrium. Both artists present distinct ways to integrate traditional and non-traditional materials at hand into acts of drawing that document subject and background immediacy. Works on display will include prints, drawings, books, photos, sculpture, material transfers, sound and video.
