    2015 MFA Thesis Exhibition

    On view from June 27- July 11, 2015 @ Leidy Gallery, Maryland Institute College of Art "Jean Yang, also in the Leidy gallery, also presented a mixed media collection of work. Artificial rocks, salt, and drawings, were all physically connected through a precarious series of fishing line pulleys. Many objects and drawings were floated and balanced by the artificial rocks and walking amongst them gave a feeling that you could single handedly destroy the entire scene. Perceptions and expectations are skewed with Yang’s work, as the idea of weight and heft is visually questioned with paper rocks and piles of salt. Much of the collections of objects gave way to suspended drawings revealing segments of text, like the word truth, hidden under a pile of salt." Amy Boone-Mcreesh
