Description: <p>Taylor Chapin: We Got Here Under False Pretenses: MFA Thesis Exhibition from Visual Arts Graduate Student May 30 – June 3, 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. or by appointment Reception: June 2, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Main Gallery, Visual Arts Facility UC San Diego We Got Here Under False Pretenses is a painting-based show exploring the&nbsp;obfuscation of forms via covering, resulting in multi-layered, illusory facades. Human bodies and consumer goods are ensconced in pattern and color, emphasizing their inherent banality while simultaneously enshrining and transforming their visual structures of identification as a way of critiquing the perception of value. Through the lack of a reveal, it is left unknowable which cloaked forms contain commercial/societal value, challenging our perceptions of what is real/unreal, valuable/valueless.</p>
