Gallery Exhibition: Mel Parada and Kate Fitzpatrick

When/WhereTuesday, Mar 10, 2020 10:00amHylton Performing Arts Center, Buchanan Partners Art Gallery, Science and Tech

March 10 - April 11

Mel Parada and Kate Fitzpatrick explore the edges of written language and find expressive territory within its formal structures, glyphs, and subtext.   Parada examines the possibilities of meaning making in communication design through prints that deconstruct of typography and narrative.  Fitzpatrick explores the concept of the palimpsest, an early method of recycling surfaces for writing, by layering translucent sheets of paper featuring her distinctive lines of proto-writing; a personal rhythmic mark-making style that resembles both cursive writing and electrocardiogram-like representations of sound or vibration.
