On View: May 11 - June 16, 2017

Reception: May 11, 2017  5-7PM

Nick Hartman’s master’s thesis exhibition, “MAN/BOY,” will be on view in Covi Gallery. Hartman’s work explores manliness, machismo, and masculinity and the ways in which such behavior is learned by, and expected from, contemporary men. As Hartman says of his work, “Cultural iconography and expected gender norms are tropes I confront within my artwork. Drawings of seemingly everyday objects act as fetishized objects of supposed unobtainable ideals that deal with masculine societal norms.” Hartman draws on a variety of iconographic material for this exploration, from Popeye to Elmer Fudd to Charlie Brown.
