Megan Bostic

Featured this month in the Upfront Gallery is artwork by former Regional Emerging Artists in Residence Megan Bostic and Davis Choun.

Megan Bostic received her Masters of Art + Design from NC State University. Her work is an internal monologue revealed—an attempt to articulate the difficult emotions of loss and grief into visible form. In her early to mid-twenties, her work derived its concepts from grief over the death of her mother. Now, Bostic’s concepts stem from the idea of loss—not only loss of life, but loss of memory, loss of identity, loss of autonomy and how these losses are intertwined.

Davis Choun is a Raleigh-based artist working in sculpture and digital media. Choun received a Bachelors of Art + Design from NCSU in 2015. He was an Artspace Regional Emerging Artist in Residence January – July 2017 and currently works in Studio 202. Recent exhibitions include Saucey, NCSU; The Hyper Real, Manchester UK; and Self, Observed, NC Museum of Art.

Site-Specific Installation:
Tedd Anderson

Davie St Entrance

Tedd Anderson’s mural features the iconic “dry space” characters for which the artist is known set in a landscape filled with swirling, topographic lines, jagged edges, and meditative objects and shapes. A banner with a poem scrawled on its surface runs through the piece, bringing the imagery into a cohesive whole.
