We are pleased to announce an exhibition Signals by Mary Jane Duffy on July 26 (Thu) to 28 (Sat), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Mary Jane Duffy is an artist interested in the ways technology is changing how we experience the world. Mostly making paintings and drawings, she investigates this idea by looking for the moments when the artifice of technology is made clearly visible. Duffy has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo shows in the U.S. and abroad, and she is a Lecturer in DePaul’s Art Media and Design Department.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
Mary Jane Duffy’s project explores both the local environment and traditional arts of Itoshima and Japan as well as how global, digital technologies interfere with our world. The idea of travel has inspired her to make installations- – found objects, paint, Sumi ink and paper emphasizing fragility and temporality – works that can be easily packed up and moved.
