Alum Dani Torvik Has Solo Show in Santa Cruz
Dani Torvik (M.F.A., ‘21) has a solo exhibition, “Drip, Pool, Ooze: Alchemical Distillations,” at the Felix Kulpa Gallery in Santa Cruz from Oct. 7-Nov. 30. There will be a reception on Friday, Oct. 7 5-8 PM.
“In my paintings, I create microcosms that integrate visuals gathered from my immediate surroundings, memories from lived-in environments, impressions of architecture, and indications of my flesh and body,” said Torvik. “I include in my work references to familiar and pervasive Western folklore that often become deeply ingrained in the psyche from childhood. I comment on the alluring aesthetic qualities of these stories while critiquing their more harmful properties.”
