Join us in celebrating the opening of Meg Aubrey’s new exhibition, Surface. The artist will be in attendance and give a short talk about her work. This event is free and open to the public.
Meg Aubrey’s candy colored palette belies the loneliness, disquiet, and isolation she renders in her paintings of up-scale suburban life. Manicured lawns in tree-lined neighborhoods imply a domestic ideal of beauty and security, but Aubrey suggests that acquiring and maintaining this pristine environment exacts a heavy price. These orderly landscapes mirrored by orderly interiors offer scant comfort for the anxiety of their inhabitants.
Meg Aubrey received a MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. She currently lives and works in Corpus Christi, Texas and is an Assistant Professor of Art at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi.
