Erika Duque MFA Thesis Exhibition
March 19 – 23, 2018
The Art Galleries at TCU presents Anochecer, Erika Duque‘s MFA Thesis Exhibition. Anochecer will be on view at Moudy Gallery from March 19 – 23, 2018, with an opening reception on Monday, March 19th, from 5-7pm.
Anochecer, literal meaning, to become night, focuses on a series of paintings that emphasizes the color changes of the landscape as the sun falls below the horizon. The viewer will be immersed through three stages of what Duque has observed to be the differences in night light. An orange period (know as twilight), beginning of the sun setting, the bluish period, when the sun sits below the horizon and finally the dark period, Night, when the sun is well below the horizon.
Erika Duque is currently an MFA Candidate at Texas Christian University with an emphasis in painting. Duque received her BFA in Painting and Drawing from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, IL. She has been featured in solo and group shows throughout Dallas/Fort Worth. Duque’s most notable exhibition was a book collaboration, Foutainhead, that was shown at The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas during Rediscovering Modes exhibit, 2011, and most recently during Sculpture into Paper, 2017. Duque was also nominated by Ro2 Gallery for 2017’s Rising Star Fundraiser at the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts.
