The School of Arts is excited to invite you to the Spring 2022, Exhibition Reception, Zoom Lecture with artist Tavarus Blackmon.

  • Exhibition will be held at the University Art Gallery
  • 45 minutes for the artist talk and 15 for live Q&A

Meta-Evil is a selection of portraits. The artist uses the baroque motif as a surface quality, both addressing the brutality of our history, the mystery of our origin and the hope for the future.

The family portrait connects the artist with its family when working in the studio on residency or fellowship. The paintings are markers through which the artist can be close to the subject in the work.

The artist makes their own colors with powdered pigment and polymer. The process of making color, making paintings and making connections with family, create a path for the artist to heal.
