MFA Alum Lee Arnold and Mark Brosseau, Curated by Kelsey Halliday Johnson at Tiger Strikes Asteroid


"Walking an exciting new line in two-dimensional practice, Brosseau is a painter who has updated his studio tools to include a digital tablet as a new drawing device for ideas and compositions; on view will be a larger-scale painting “Tacky”, a series of small panel paintings, and a framed tablet with a slideshow of recent digital drawings. Using various layers that are sandwiched together in his works or collided against one another in painterly space, Brosseau makes investigations into the psychological and emotional spaces of abstraction. By constructing his work in a graphic but physical way through gesture, color, and drawing-based techniques, he creates foreign formal spaces and forms that birth a new world. Here questions of relationships, humor, identity, and environment are raised – pointing to the elements of our human experience with the world around us that are perhaps best summarized outside of concrete language."
