Visual arts students unveil Strange Attractors

Posted: Tuesday 19 November 2019

Artistic works made from crayon, aerosol, ash, dust and dirt will be some of the intriguing exhibits on display by Federation University Australia’s Graduating Visual Arts students at the Gippsland campus this week.

Titled Strange Attractors, the exhibition will reveal the diverse and individual paths that Arts Academy Gippsland students Jeremy Kasper, Taylor McGregor and Jake Velasco have taken throughout their studies.

Their final exhibition of art work will see 22 works of art on display ranging from ceramics, painting, printmaking and sculpture.

Exhibits will include Jeremy Kasper’s Sacrifice, which is about memory; Taylor McGregor’s ‘Just like the trees and flowers. . . ‘, (a ceramic vessel) and Jake Velasco’s Opulent Self (a vivid painting of a face of flowers).

The exhibition at the Switchback Gallery will run until 27 March.

Quotes attributable to Technical Officer, Switchback Gallery, Neale Stratford

“This exhibition promises to be one of the most compelling of the year. Our three graduating students have a great passion for their art and this clearly shows in their brilliant work.”

“This exhibition is a fitting finale to a year of very impressive work by our students and the wider community.”

 Quotes attributable to exhibition curator Julie Reed Henderson

“The title Strange Attractors is a term that in chaos theory is given to a force or organising principle for seemingly chaotic dynamic and discrete systems, which seems appropriate for this exhibition.”

“We know that our students will bring their rich experiences to bare in their future endeavours. We celebrate their success and wish them the very best.”
