Melanie Lowranceâ€™s recent works will be on display at the Curfman Gallery in the Lory Student Center until March 30.
Her work consists of self-portrait drawings that examine the links between physicality and emotional identity, and the role of memory in the two concepts.
â€œThe figures depicted in my work seem to ask what it is to inhabit a body,â€ Lowrance said in a statement on the galleryâ€™s website. â€œExecuted in response to instances of conflicting physical and emotional states that accompany female experience and facets of self-possession in general, the drawings investigate stature and monumentality as explicit indicators of both power and vulnerability.â€
â€œAspects of corporeal, cerebral, and emotional identity are physically manifested in the drawings,â€ she added.
