Vincent Chong and Jon Atkinson: MCMXCCII

MCMXCII displays the recent work of Vince Chong (B.F.A./B.A. '14) and Jon Atkinson (B.F.A. '14). Both artists experiment with how new materials and images can preserve and express recurring artistic interests. Chong investigates the symbolic value of the monkey, particularly in its relation to notions of childishness and idealism. Atkinson is currently experimenting with subject matter ranging from abstraction to topographic mapping, and while he explores a new direction in terms of method, his work is still highly based in history and the past.
