North Campus Auditorium, 2702 Spring Street
This exhibition will display works by two artists that reference history in the work from an allegorical point of view. Mysock states of his small-scale, hyper-realistic oil paintings, “I’m a revisionist history painter. Rather than rewrite the narrative of the past to justify an ideology, I repaint yesterday’s imagery in order to rationalize our present circumstances.” Fortushniak works in oil as well as collage and mixed media. He re-contexualizes historical references in his work as an examination that the challenges of the past are still evident in the present tense.
