Luminous Void

March 29 – April 1, 2021

Luminous Void, a solo photography exhibition by Bachelor of Fine Arts degree candidate Nicole Rico, will be hosted by the Department of Art, Art History, and Design at Michigan State University.

Rico’s surrealist work focuses on connection with a secondary consciousness, an Other, who accompanies us, unseen, from birth through eternity. In Luminous Void, the viewer observes as several travelers, disjointed from the fabric of time, enmesh themselves within the human landscape. The series is as much about the eternal undulation of matter and emotion, as it is using the innate corporeal flesh as a means to invoke and ascend.

Luminous Void will be on display in Kresge Art Center’s Gallery 101 from March 29 until April 1.

The BFA solo exhibition is a major component of the BFA in Studio Art degree program. BFA candidates in the final year of study present their creative research to the public in a solo exhibition held in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design student galleries.
