Multimedia exhibit at Landmark College explores the human condition

PUTNEY — The Fine Arts Gallery at Landmark College is currently exhibiting multimedia works of art by six artists, all centered around the human form.

Curated by Landmark College Associate Professor of Arts Samuel Rowlett, "This Mortal Coil" opened on Sept. 22, and will be on display through Jan. 22. Visitors can view it daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., in the Fine Arts Building.

The six participating artists are N.E. Brown, Lorelei d'Andriole, Johannes De Young, Andrae Green, Johanna Hoogendyk, and Young Min Moon. From the Confucian funerary rites of South Korea, to a child's imaginative escape from poverty in Jamaica, to a trans-artist's personal journey as a means to effect social change, Rowlett says, these works were selected to represent a diversity of cultural perspectives on the human condition.

"In the venerable tradition of artists depicting the human figure, the work in this exhibition explores themes relating to the human condition: both conscience and the consciousness of being, the viewer and the viewed, the body and mortality; to quote Shakespeare's Hamlet: 'The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to,'" Rowlett said in a news release.

Additional works by Green are also on display as a solo exhibition in the atrium and hallways of the Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Center for Science, Technology, and Innovation. Using allegory and drawing inspiration from Ralph Ellison's novel Invisible Man, Green explores family relationships and ideas of identity, race, and perception.
