World Whoopee I
The four worst things about the
Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) show
in the Union Assembly Hall are
the institutional yellow walls. The
work itself is on the whole well-
executed and interesting, espec-
ially when you consider the in-
herent problems of an art student
in Ann Arbor.
This City offers little in the
way of technological or financial
aid to artists. The facilities at the
art school do not allow for work
of the scale or scope expected of
a professional artist. Funds are
usually inadequate, and the only
art supply store near the school
hardly lends financial encourage-
While the works are hardly
shocking, they show both sensi-
tivity and maturity. One profes-
sor of art suggests there is little
in the show which can be called
original; there is too much hero
worship or mimicry of such art
world scions as Oldenberg or
Stella. This criticism is too harsh.
The influences are certainly there,
but so is the originality.
For example, the effect of Kath-
leen Finneran's sculpture "Fix-
ture no. 3" is not so different
from the ironic effect of Olden-
berg's hard and soft light switch-
es. Yet, her approach ishdecidedly
more formal. Influence and syn-
Rocco Lodise's "Vibration" re-
flects a similar originality. In the
tradition of Optical and Minimal
Art, the painting destroys its
own reality. The edges, actually
straight, are unquestionably curv-
ed. The effect is uncanny.
The show will run until next
Wednesday. See it.
