MFA Student Maggie Avolio Featured in New American Paintings

In a recent issue of New American Paintings, current MFA Maggie Avolio was featured and profiled and had her artist statement published online. She describes her practice as being engaged in producing:

“…minimalistic artwork that exists simultaneously as painting, sculpture, and installation. Raw canvas is unwoven, torn, folded, or reconstructed to create three-dimensional form. I create marks using unconventional methods like stitching. Paint is absent from the canvas yet sometimes appears in the surrounding area, creating a new spatial identity.”
