NATCHITOCHES – Artist and Northwestern State University alumna Marie Robichaux is among 11 students who presented their final works at the University of East London Master’s of Art Showcase under the guidance of 1992 Turner Prize winner Grenville Davey. The exhibition, held earlier this month, featured artwork in painting, sculpture, print, photograph, installation and video.
Robichaux completed her BFA at NSU in 2016 and contributed five acrylic paintings and a mixed media mural to the show.
“These works aim to evoke the sense of recalling a memory poorly, with few small details penetrating the haze of time and distance, while also exploring the emotions that stem from leaving home and knowing the landscape has changed beyond recognition,” she said. “The locations portrayed are a mix of Louisiana, my home state, and Great Britain. The anonymity of the subjects reflects the inability to predict when a place will remind the viewer of somewhere they have previously visited.”
Robichaux earned her master’s degree in fine art at University of East London’s Docklands campus.
