November 13 - January 8, 2003 at Creative Research Laboratory


Opening Thursday, November 13, Creative Research Laboratory presents A Moment in the Making, an exhibition of recent work by faculty in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin. A Moment in the Making features new work by Troy Brauntuch, Lee Chesney, Steve Daly, Janet Kastner, Lawrence McFarland, Gibbs Milliken, Vincent Mariani, and Tuan Phan. An opening reception will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition continues through January 8.

A Moment in the Making presents a range of works, media, and intentions by a group of faculty artists and one designer. From cast-bronze sculpture to painting, drawing, prints and photography, the work in A Moment in the Making often explores narrative and temporality…

• Troy Brauntuch’s paintings, drawings and photographs remake small, stripped-down, abstract moments that speak less about actual events and places than spaces and times recreated through memory and personal recognition.

• A group of intaglio prints by Lee Chesney explore narrative through images based on historical events.

• A new large-scale cast bronze sculpture by Steve Daly, titled, Controller, and several mixed media works on paper, continue his reflections on social and interpersonal dynamics through emblematic characters and objects.

• Janet Kastner large acrylic and charcoal drawings, like her ceramic work, are sensuous, abstract explorations based on organically growing biological forms.

• A group of large-scale color digital prints by Lawrence McFarland discover juxtapositions of old and new on urban streets in Italy.

• Vincent Mariani’s recent work continues his life-long evocative explorations of light effects.

• Gibbs Milliken ’s paintings realistically portray microcosms of earth surfaces with life-size subjects such as stones, insects, leaves, and other organic debris.

• In his wide-ranging projects, Tuan Phan conducts provocative investigations of civic responsibility in design and in society.
