Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Adell McMillan Gallery

EMU Visual Arts Team is pleased to welcome Anne Margratten to the EMU Adell McMillan Gallery. Anne's unique exhibit will be on view starting February 15th in the gallery.

Artist statement and bio:

"To envelop something completely requires a kind of accidental reciprocity. As we are bound or swaddled, we impress our form into the thing that engulfs us. Even the passive presence exerts some agency."

In her exhibition, Envelop, Anne Magratten presents three bodies of work comprised of painted folding screens, queer still life paintings, and farm to table drawings. Each group engages and rejects key norms of space, intimacy, and monetary transactions. Within her series Gathered Horizons painted screens divide the physical space of the room while presenting the visual spaces of landscape and abstraction. In her series of still life paintings How Queer, Dear, she toys with visual conundrums specific to modern sexuality, gender, reproduction, and queer identity. Employing humor and formalism she cloaks the taboo in the subtle. In You Pick, drawings are dispersed into the economy using the model of the Oregon farm & flower stand. Trust, empowerment through self-service, and the elimination of interposing parties mimic the core components of the Northwest grassroots economy. 

All works are intended to question and open the boundaries between art and the decorative. Anne is particularly interested in the concept of ownership and in the way materials, location, gender, and class shape the value of art objects.

Anne Magratten is a graduate of Mills College and received her MFA in Studio Art at The University of Oregon in 2015. She is an Instructor of Painting and Drawing at Linn Benton Community College. Additionally, she offers college drawing and painting courses within Oregon prisons. She is a member of the Eugene based artist collective Tropical Contemporary. Additional aspects of her art practice can be seen on her website http://www.annemagratten.com and the website of the collective https://www.tropicalcontemporary.space.
