Zach Ingram (M.F.A. candidate in Studio Art) presents work in a two person exhibition at grayDUCK gallery. The exhibition will be on view May 7 – June 5, 2016. An opening reception will be held May 7, 7–10 p.m.

Current Affairs explores the dichotomy of looking to the future and exploring your past. Rachel Bury is investigating the future with her unconventional paintings and science fiction attractions. Ingram’s work touches on how his past and ancestors affect him and his process. Both artists are dexterous, inventive sculptors that use material and paint in innovative ways.

Ingram states:

This body of work uses symbols of masculinity and power to examine my upbringing in the Deep South, as well as the relationship between labor and the men in my family. Born into a lineage of truck drivers, carpenters, and farmers, I think about where I see myself in that history, as both an artist and the last carrier of the family name.
