An exhibition of paintings,
photographs, and drawings by regional campus students, staff and faculty in celebration of the Year of Science is on display at the Stamford Campus Art Gallery through April 8.
There will be a public reception on Saturday, April 4, 1 to 3 pm.
The exhibition features the paintings of Guido Garaycochea, a professor of art and art history at the Avery Point Campus.
“I work with icons that I have created mostly on my own, sometimes using gold as an expression of our external-internal struggle between our many different selves, our private and our own ambiguity,” says Garaycochea.
“In my work there is always a tension between different parts of the design. Trying to express the internal contradiction that is always life is why I mostly paint just mere insinuations of bodies in constant transformation. Bodies and organic forms that are, even after I finish my paintings, in a constant transformation like in our memories after things happen. Those organic forms are always looking for a reality inside another reality which is itself a contradiction.”
Also included in the exhibit are algorithms by Sandra DeLozier Coleman, adjunct professor of mathematics at the Avery Point Campus, and botanicals by Diane Barcelo, adjunct professor of art and art history at Avery Point. Students from Chile, Germany, Ukraine, and the United States also contributed to this show.
The Stamford Campus Art Gallery supports the University’s educational mission by stimulating active learning and dialogue about the arts and the creative process and aims to attract artists and members of the community to high caliber exhibitions and programs.
The Gallery is located on the Concourse level of the campus, at the intersection of Broad Street and Washington Boulevard. Free parking is available on the second floor of the UConn Stamford Campus Washington Boulevard garage.
