"Underlying Patterns" is a two-person MFA Thesis Exhibition by MFA candidates Emily Collins and Nicole Weldy. Through observing hierarchical relationships and their visual elements, the artists manipulate materials to make the unseen a tangible experience. By interpreting repetitive behavior over time or an amalgamation of units in nature, works in the exhibition find new ways to engage with perception, aesthetics, and documentation. They provide space for healing and growth, multiple aspects of pattern.
Emily Collins is an artist from Kings Mountain, N.C. who graduated from Winthrop University in 2021 with her BFA. Her artwork uses the body and anomalies to illustrate and reveal the unseen physiological effects of emotional abuse.
Nicole Weldy is an artist from Fishers, I.N. and is the first BFA graduate of Samford University in 2021. Her artwork blends machinery and manual craftsmanship to explore the physics of object creation.
