Whetsell Exhibition: "Dying on the Vine" by Sheridan Kate Murray (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: This year's Whetsell Exhibition, on display in the Richardson Family Art Gallery from November 7 through December 21, features the work of student artist Sheridan Kate Murray, recipient of the 2017 Whetsell Memorial Fellowship.

About her exhibit, entitled "Dying on the Vine," Murray says:

"The organic, nonrepresentational forms that are prevalent within my drawings come from an abstract, blurry picture in my mind’s eye of muscadine grapes spotted one day during my freshman year environmental studies lab. I remember being captivated by the grapes and their perfectly imperfect circular forms, appreciating the way they cascaded over each other with a lack of control that has never been prevalent in my own life. This image, always present in the back of my mind, is one that I often find myself rendering in sketches or doodles as a method of relaxation and comfort. Depicted with varying levels of control and tightness, the constancy of the organic muscadine-like forms found in these pieces represents the consistent force of natural inspiration in my life, as well as my continuous journey to coax myself into letting go and embracing chaos. 

As seen in both the large-scale drawings and smaller works, I have attempted to explore the same subject matter in as many different unique and unusual ways as possible. The repetition of similar forms evokes a sense of harmony within the works as a whole, while the inclusion of graphite pencil calls to mind the doodling process utilized by many as a method of escapism. Though all branching off from the same initial design, each work explores different facets of nonrepresentational organic shapes in a manner that mirrors my own self-exploration and introspective journey. The repetitive shapes utilized make each work feel cohesive, while the abstraction allows for the viewer to apply their own thoughts and feelings to the work."
Designed to support and promote the visual arts at Wofford, the Whetsell Fellowship is a summer fellowship established in 2006 by Dr. William O. Whetsell in memory of his brother, Dan Whetsell.
