Unclaimed Space: The 2014 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition showcases the cutting-edge works of Micah Cash, Julia DePinto, Jared Holt, Shane Morrissey, and Reagen Elizabeth O’Reigaeken.
Micah Cash is both a painter and photographer with a focus on landscapes and their social meaning. He received his BFA in Painting and Art History from the University of South Carolina.
Julia DePinto says her work focuses on the idea of “new spaces” and “the interaction between form and media,” incorporating many deep psychological concepts. She received her BFA in Printmaking from Wright State University in Dayton, OH.
Jared Holt is completing his MFA studies in Interdisciplinary Studies. His work ranges from small sculptures to large installations. In creating his art, he hopes to inspire questions and curiosity from the viewer.
Shane Morrissey is a sculptor whose work is inspired by his experiences and recollections. He uses a variety of materials as he tries to “convey impressions of past events.” He received his BFA in 2009 from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Reagen Elizabeth O’Reigaekn is receiving her MFA in Artifacts and Evidence. She is inspired by David Kellogg Lewis’ theory of modal realism and reduction of alethic modality and says her works are “contemplations on emptiness.” She completed her BFA at Montserrat College of Art in MA.
