MFA Candidate Shae Goodlett’s Thesis Exhibition: Invocation

As we practice social distancing, we want to bring our art to your inbox. This week we are sharing images from MFA Candidate Shae Goodlett’s Thesis Exhibition: Invocation.
Invocation is a series of meditative line drawings that conjure an intangible presence by exercising the illusory characteristics of light and color interaction. Through a meditative and labor-intensive process, Goodlett attempts perfection, knowing that it cannot be reached. The images’ interactions conjure phantom colors and optical effects which are not physically present, but nonetheless real and communally experienced. In this way, Goodlett’s work addresses issues of ritual, divinity, and perception.
