The Spring 2021 B.F.A. Group Exhibition showcases recent work from two graduating seniors in the UNI Department of Art. Indrid Aaron Hutchins of Henderson, Nevada presents an exhibition titled Untangled. Hutchins is an emerging performance artist and printmaker. Their current work, utilizing yarn work and other multimedia pieces, is tied to their personal journey, navigating how to cope with the history they carry. Triston Kirschbaum of Des Moines, Iowa presents a painting exhibition titled Knocking on the Brain. Kirschbaum believes in the philosophy of absurdism and existentialism. These ways of life are what shape his work and what he draws inspiration from. Currently, his paintings have become more and more absurd with weird characters and bright colors.
