ASMSU Campus Entertainment presents OST.ONE, a collection of oil paintings by Liz Compos. The exhibit will be showing in the Exit Gallery November 30 – December 11. There will be a free public artist reception Wednesday, December 9th from 5 – 7 pm.
Liz Compos is currently a student at Montana State University, working towards graduating with a BFA in painting. Last May she returned from a semester of studying in Italy, and also worked on her Bachelors degree at The Art Institute of Boston in Boston, Massachusetts.
The works shown in the exhibit are oil paint and mixed media on canvas. They are part of a larger body of work that is still in progress. Through her work, Liz responds to the struggle between mankind and the manufactured object to create paintings that reflect the state of human culture and the age of technology. According to Compos, in this day and age people are no more important than their increasingly complex inventions. She demonstrates the battle between the human organic state and the surroundings we have fabricated for ourselves with an intricate layering process of structurally correct charcoal drawings, sculptural, fleshy masses of oil paint inspired by the human form, fields of flat artificial color, and a geometric breakdown of the space.
The Exit Gallery is located in Strand Union Building room 212, Montana State University, Bozeman. Hours are Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
