Margaret Inga Urías (Fellow in Printmaking/Drawing/Artists Books ‘11)
Urías’ solo exhibition Return to Me features cosmologically-inspired drawings, photographs, engraved glass, large-scale murals, and sound. With meticulous detail, a stark black-and-white palette, and dramatic shifts in scale, Urías creates work inspired by her belief that dust, if examined closely enough, “could tell the story of everything that ever existed.” This work speaks to both origination and aftermath, and is permeated by images of fragmentation, entropy, and the ethereal.
When: November 11, 2016 – December 5, 2016
Where: String Room Gallery, Wells College, Main Building 170 Main Street, Aurora, NY 13026
