    Lauren Riojas-Fitzpatrick at Terminal 136

    Terminal 136 presents the MFA Thesis Exhibition, "Mending Wall: A Relic of Truth," by Lauren Riojas-Fitzpatrick. The exhibit will be on view through March 16, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019 from 6-9 p.m. Gallery will also be open for First Friday on March 1 from 6-9 p.m.


    Lauren Riojas-Fitzpatrick makes art about life, an ever-fluctuating place of joy, anger, and fear, containment and infinity, everything and nothing. Riojas-Fitzpatrick uses a multidisciplinary approach to creating artwork, often using drawing, painting, collage and site-specific installation as modes of communicating. In "Mending Wall: A Relic of Truth," Riojas-Fitzpatrick uses a gabion wall as a primary source of inspiration. This type of wall is created by the elemental material of wire manipulated into a cage-like form, that is in turn filled with stones – the wall is permeable by air, water, sight, and sound, yet still evokes a physical barrier. The gabion wall is a metaphor for the counterintuitive nature in the notion of two separate, distinct sides – that is rather a singular space hinged by a psychological construct.

    Riojas-Fitzpatrick (born 1985, Austin, TX) graduated from Texas State University with a BFA in Painting.  She will be completing her MFA in Painting/Drawing from UTSA in May 2019. Her works have been featured in numerous group exhibitions and has work in the permanent collection of the University of Texas at Tyler, as well as many private collections.  She lives in New Braunfels, Texas.
