Atrium – Jason Lanka

Jason Lanka’s massive drawings and photos are now on display in the Atrium space in the Union.  They will be up for several weeks.  Here are some images of his work and some information about his work.


Boundary; something that marks or fixes a limit (as of territory). The line that divides one area of land from another.

The space at which our culture comes in contact with the environment inspires my creative work. Much can be understood about the nature of how our society defines its role and place within the natural world by the observation of this boundary.
I seek to address the demarcation of our species’ relationship with the land. Am I of the land or in the land? Each piece made within a lineage of exploration has set out to answer this question. Our identity as people and a nation are so often defined by our place within our environment and how we view our relationship with the natural world.

Flora/Fauna – Work by Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson

Here are images of the artworks in the show.

Roxanne Jackson

Kako Ueda:

Flora/Fauna Opens this Friday (29th) at 5pm!

Welcome all to the Spring 2010 semester.  We would like to start the semester off right with an intensely intricate, brutal, and beautiful exhibit: Flora/Fauna


Flora/Fauna
Work by Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson
January 29-February 26, 2010

Opening reception: Friday, January 29, 5-8pm
Gallery talk with artists: 4pm

Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson focus on physical nature and human nature in abstract and inventive ways.  They share an interest in dualities, such as nature and culture, light and dark. In their work, the natural world is intricate, fascinating, grotesque, frightening – something to be drawn deeply into and sometimes shocked by.

New York artist Kako Ueda constructs her work from intricate hand-cut paper which references, in part, paper cutting from Japan where she was born. Minneapolis-based Roxanne Jackson works three-dimensionally with clay to form large compositions of human/animal hybrids.

Hello All,
