Supersystems by Kathleen Thum
Clemson University Center for Visual Arts presents Supersystems August 14 – June 4. The drawings and paintings of Kathleen Thum’s exhibition are a hybrid of various human physiological systems, which are depicted through abstract networks of forms, shapes, lines, marks and color. Like our internal anatomy, the structures in these works are layered, linear, flowing, clustered, open, dense and intertwined. Referencing medical illustrations, industrial systems and topographical maps, Thum playfully creates her own imagery to portray the fascinating inter-workings of our bodies. Free.
