ARCHETYPIC - MFA thesis exhibition by Chad Steve

March 18, 2012 - March 23, 2012
Mānoa Campus, Art Building, Commons Gallery

How is it used? What does it do? How does it do it? Where did it come from? Who used or uses it? What is it made what of? When you first see an object that you are not completely familiar with, it generates many questions.

ARCHETYPIC, created by MFA candidate Chad Steve, is an exhibition of ceramic sculptures that looks at our connection to objects. Seemingly straightforward and minimal, these tools hold imbedded stories. While the forms themselves imply a function, the weathered and faded surfaces reference a previous existence in their scuffed and scarred surfaces. It is hard not to feel a sense of nostalgia and reconnections with our own treasured objects during the show.

Opening reception: Sunday, March 18, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
