Travis Rice: Fodderland
MFA Thesis Exhibition of Travis Rice
Attempting to breathe new life into overused modernist conventions, Travis Rice, in his MFA thesis exhibition titled, "Fodderland," has created a series of hard edge compositions inspired by the sensational terra firma of the Southwest. Wandering between painting, drawing and sculpture, Rice slathers his digitally derived terrains with bold, gaudy, artificial finishes that challenge codes of taste, while at the same time defying the austere foundation of the hard edge aesthetic.
