Reception Friday, September 22, 6-8pm
Meet the Artists!
Migrations is a huge gallery installation printed by handcast rubber stamps and ink of iconic images created by UNL students, inspired by Visiting Artist Suhka Worob. The students carved and cast their own rubber stamps, and did the stamping and printing on the large gallery wall, creating patterning and concepts of mass migrations – of birds, insects, herds, people, and the conveyances that transport the many individuals that make up the whole.
Worob will present his own print works on paper in a concurrent exhibition. He has developed this innovative casting process and DIY attitude to create with stamping and rollers for large scale printing impact of a myriad of symbols and signs.
Worob grew up in a small community in the high desert landscape of Prescott, Arizona, and currently lives in Bozman, Montana. Worob obtained his BFA in Printmaking from Northern Arizona University in 2006, MFA in Printmaking from Montana State University in 2011, and M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from Montana State University in 2015. Worob’s work explores contemporary approaches to the printmaking multiple through works on paper as well as installation and interactive works. Worob’s work is primarily driven by his history in communal living and observation of the potential of humanity when set upon a common goal. Worob has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
