ART EXHIBIT: David Mudrinich: An Element of Nature – Drawings, Paintings & Beehives

August 2, 2019 - November 24, 2019
11:00 a.m.

As an artist, Mudrinich has always been interested in a sense of place, and the various characteristics that make any one location unique. This can include the natural geographic features of that landscape as well as the human alterations made to the land. Mudrinich’s work can fluctuate in perspective between both expansive panoramic views and more intimate, close-up locations. The beehives seem to symbolize a rebirth or regeneration of purpose, giving a new life to what was once an active place. Often, their configuration seems to suggest a mysterious ritual-like setting that might be measuring time, much like a miniature Stonehenge or sundial. The pastel drawings of beehives included in this exhibit are a subtheme of mine that reinforces this overall sense of continuous change with a particular place. David Mudrinich lives in Pope County, Arkansas and is a drawing and painting professor in the Department of Art at Arkansas Tech University. He studied at Penn State University and the University of Georgia. While developing his art, between degrees, he also worked as a research forestry technician in an experimental forest. The experience gave him a deeper, more varied look into the environment that would contribute to his theme.
