November 23 - January 18, 2021
Traversing painting, sculpture, ceramics, and performance, graduate students Nicholas Bauch, Cody Hilleboe, Julia Maiuri, and Nadia Kellner present an eclectic mix of recently completed works. While Hilleboe and Kellner are deeply invested in explorations of materiality, Bauch and Maiuri craft strange, unsettling, and, at times, humorous images.
About the Artists
Nicholas Bauch works at the intersection of art and geography. He holds a Ph.D. in Geography (2010) from the University of California-Los Angeles, where he specialized in cultural and historical geography. He is the author of Enchanting the Desert (2016, Stanford University Press), and A Geography of Digestion (2017, University of California Press). Prior to pursuing an M.F.A. degree, he was founding faculty director of the Experimental Geography Studio at the University of Oklahoma, the Studio’s first home. He has taught geography, photography, history, and language at six universities since 2004. Between 2012 and 2016, he was a scholar at Stanford University’s digital humanities research center.
Cody Hilleboe intuitively responds to material, often working with clay and found objects to create sculptural installations. He earned a BFA from the University of Montana and has participated in residencies at Medalta, Cub Creek Foundation, and Taos Clay Studio. Hilleboe's work is held in the permanent collection of the Montana Museum of Art and Culture.
Nadia Kellner's studio practice examines materiality through the construction of large-scale sculptures and manipulated spaces. Growing up in Cairo, Egypt, Kellner's work reflects her experience living in a congested and hectic city— a place of relentless urban development. Kellner holds a BFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and has participated in residencies at Mudfire, Salem Art Works, and Penland School of Craft. In 2018 she received a sculpture commission from the Cedar Park Sculpture Garden in Cedar Park, Texas.
Julia Maiuri's paintings reinterpret family stories and private narratives through uncanny phenomena such as dream worlds, alternate realities, and doppelgängers. Through the process of painting, familiar symbols become tinged by something hauntingly unfamiliar. She holds a BFA from Wayne State University and has exhibited nationally in Minneapolis, Detroit, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and New York. Maiuri's work has been featured in numerous publications including Floorr Magazine, WOPOZI, and Art Maze Mag.
