“DISPOSITIONS” the 2021 BFA Thesis Exhibition OPENS AT THE UNIVERSITY ART MUSEUM MULLENNIX BRIDGE GALLERY AT NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY

Las Cruces, NM–The Department of Art and the University Art Museum are proud to present, “DISPOSITIONS” featuring work by graduating Bachelor of Fine Arts students Jesus Del Rio, Jiyong Kim and Blanca Martinez.

Del Rio’s work reflects his fascination with the sociological and psychological conditions that shape our reactions to the world. His work explores the inequalities of this country, particularly as they dominate societal norms and issues.

Kim uses photographic media combining the needs of the world of commerce with insights from fine art, spirituality and psychology. He also focuses on elemental form, rhythm and pattern allowing for visual impact to be accomplished with simplicity.

Martinez focuses on family relations and emotions. She explores the complexities between parents and children as well as individual connections within family by using illustrations to create a conversation about how families interact with one another in a home space and how emotions can carry onto future generations.
