The Fine Art Gallery at Ferris State University will be hosting their first exhibit of the 2017-18 Academic year starting Thursday, September 7th and it will run until October 7th. The exhibit is entitled “Angst” and it featured art work from Seth Marosok who won the 2016 MFA Kendall Graduate Award for this solo exhibit. Below is a word from the artist.
“Drawing is my mechanism for alleviating the stresses and irrational anxieties that invade my day-to-day reality. I wish to show the struggle against forces beyond out control or understanding; against destruction, collapse, change, decay, and death. These forces, be they natural, biological, or otherwise, threaten to damage and destroy the body. The themes of body horror and abjection are prevalent in my work. Bodies are fragmented, twisted and contorted. In some cases the figure is not apparent but lost amongst the undulations of decay and detritus. Internal body parts are exposed as the outside barriers of the body begin to break down and merge with their surroundings.”
