B.F.A. students

shine at Slusser

By Charles Oestreicher
An exciting and unique exhibit
,opened Wednesday at the School of
Art's Slusser Gallery. The show,
Swhich features seven B.F.A.
candidates, highlights both the
specialized and diverse talents of
each artist.
Graphic design and illustration
Iieces comprise the majority of the
exhibit, and it is those pieces which
are the most striking. Some of the

most skillful and provocative pieces
are by Lik Kwong, who intends to
pursue a Master's Degree in
Medical Illustration. His excellent
drawings and paintings of wildlife
distinguish themselves through
unbelievable attention to detail and
atmospheric effects using airbrush,
pencils, and pastels. Peacocks, a
wood duck, a lobster and othef
creatures live and breathe on the
page. "Phobias: I and II" are also.
interesting, employing simple
pencil drawings to imply frigh -

tening, unimaginable scenarios.
Kwong's collection even includes a
latex sculpture of a toad, looking
quite real in its leafy surroundings.
Todd Mathews is an innovative
interior and industrial designer, as
well as a skilled metalworker. His
designs and renderings of interiors
for commercial display areas show
sensitivity to human needs and
aesthetic desires. Mathews' designs
for such items as a tea kettle and
kitchen scale, while not incredibly
dynamic, are functional yet

attractive, maintaining both
qualities without compromising
either one. Mathews' bench and
table system, executed in striking
black and red, also appears well
suited to household use, although
less than luxurious.

images were created using the
Quantel computer paintbox. Both
women also display .great talent in
their drawing, something not
always evident but necessary to the
designer. Wentworth's "An

GOING PLACES

The enormous amount of
cleverly designed and skillfully
executed graphics pieces of the
B.F.A. exhibit shed new light on
the potential of this art form. Often
the artistry of such pieces is never
even thought of. Still, it takes a
keen eye and imagination to
successfully utilize the medium and
attract a reader. Typefaces, images,
and color must be manipulated in
order for the piece to be noticed and
convey a message.
The skill of Robin McCormick
and Deborah Wentworth is
especially evident. Both get the
viewer's attention without
"shouting" and then hold it without
boring him or her, either. These
two designers both adhere to
tradition in the field and go beyond
it, in the process creating stunning
examples of functional yet dramatic
and beautiful art. Especially notable
are Wentworth's design for a public
service ad regarding homelessness
and a collaboration between
McCormick and Denise McLain on
"Troublespot" television warnings
meant for broadcast on Detroit's

Appalachian Childhood" illustration
series is a good example combining
colored pencil with the artist's
memories of West Virginia to
produce atmospheric and textural
drawings.
The three other artists in the
show display the most diverse
talents, their work ranging in media
from painting and drawing to fabric
and graphic design. Their
collections also include several
photo series of notable insight.
Denise McLain's "City Series"
presents a realistic and grim view of
inner Detroit, with one photo in
particular, "Sweetwater Tavern,"
carrying the poignant bite of broken
visions. Shauna Roberts has a lot
of very skillful drawings, paintings,
and designs in the exhibit, but her
most visually appealing works are
in the hallway outside the gallery.
They are several photos Roberts
shot in Europe; one she took in
Switzerland is a breathtaking
example of how the artist can
capture and interpret natural beauty
without losing its basic appeal.
