Lino Azevedo and Bridget Kirkland:
M.F.A Thesis Exhibition
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery, Rutledge Building

Lino Azevedo defines his thesis “XPLOITISM” as the system by which members of our society that are in a position of power take advantage of those who are not. Azevedo’ s intent is to visually communicate to the viewer some of the enormities in the world, and in the words of Gottfried Helnwein, “to use art as a weapon.” Lino Azevedo was born in the 1970’s to Portuguese immigrants near the city of San Francisco, California. Lino has worked as a freelance artist in the areas of illustration, portraiture, and murals.

Bridget Kirkland’s body of work is titled  Whaddya Say Jim. For Kirkland not all memories or stories are recalled perfectly. It is here that her work begins, in a place where thoughts are patchy and stories are recreated. The stories she tells are fragmented and reveal only a glimpse into the larger narrative. Born in Philadelphia, Bridget Kirkland was raised on the lakeshore of Erie, PA. Summer art classes and a grandmother who “looked at things differently” shaped her personal outlook. Solving visual problems coupled with an innate ability to “see through the fluff” allows Kirkland to express art through fresh, clean, honest design.
