A sunset…a painted wall…the normal routines of a day, Corey B. Strange helps the preoccupied, unobservant public see God’s art (the art of life) through his artistic mediums and helps us to see everyday things in a new light. The SUU Department of Art and Design will feature Corey B. Strange, conceptual artist from LaVerkin, Utah, in this weeks Art Insights presentation entitled Something/Not Something, Thursday, April 26th at 7 p.m. in the J.L. Sorenson Physical Education Building, room 101.

Strange’s, sometimes strange art has been exhibited around the world, including the Edinburgh Gallery of Modern Art and Central Utah Art Center. His works use many techniques including, drawing, photography, installation art, media and sound. Strange’s website describes Strange stating, “Through his phoenix eyes, we see art as a focusing device for the beautiful question that of Life.”

Corey B. Strange will be discussing his work in the context of the contemporary art world's critical dialogue. He will explain how his art intersects within the art history of the last 35 years through working concepts, methods, and media. His work stimulates good conversations on the topic of what art is and Strange would like to discuss and interact with those in attendance about the ideas about art presented in the lecture.
