Traditional art and technology collide in VSU’s new art exhibit.
“We Two Founts” opened on Monday in the Fine Arts gallery.
“We Two Founts” is a sculptural video created by Derek Larson and Marc Mitchell. A sculptural video is a flat shape sculpture where videos are projected that an artist constructs. In this sculptural video, characters and symbols shift around on the surface.
The two artists have collaborated in this exhibit by using their contrasting talents — Larson with his work in video production and Mitchell with his work in paint — to create this piece.
Larson, a professor at Georgia Southern University, is originally from Seattle, and he graduated from Yale University in 2007 with a Master of Fine Arts degree. Larson’s paintings often contain very colorful characteristics.
Marc Mitchell, gallery director and professor at Georgia Southern University, is a graduate from Boston University with a Master of Fine Arts in painting.
“We want to encourage people to come see for themselves, and we want people to know that the gallery is here for the students and (to) please come,” Julie Bowland, VSU gallery director, said.
The exhibit will be up until Nov. 2. For more information, contact the Fine Arts Gallery at 229-333-5835.
