The Pollock Gallery of the Division of Art at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts will present the exhibition soak stain bleed bloom from January 31 through March 21, 2015.
This exhibition by Meadows School alumna Kristen Cochran (M.F.A. ’10) features a series of lush mixed media drawings on paper and a site-specific soft sculptural intervention. The installation includes physical traces of a fluid studio process, and Cochran considers its symbolic implications. For instance, actions such as soaking, staining, bleeding and blooming were a part of the process that produced the art objects included in the exhibition, but these actions also imply bodies, objects or architecture in a state of abjection.
