Melanie Lowrance’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.

“The figures depicted in my work seem to ask what it is to inhabit a body,” Lowrance said in a statement on the gallery’s website. “Executed 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.”

“Aspects of corporeal, cerebral, and emotional identity are physically manifested in the drawings,” she added.
