Ugly But Happy

Thursday, May 18, 2023- June 8, 2023 Multiday event - 22 days

Wilson Hall Gallery

Ugly But Happy is an art exhibition by recent graduate from the UAH Department of Art, Art History & Design, Ben Hornyak. Growing up, Ben has always been interested in art, but has also been very technically minded. He has found that he can realize both these interests through Digital Animation and Sculpture; in Digital Animation for its technical bearing and narrative nature, and Sculpture for its hands-on expressiveness and problem solving. His ambition as an artist is to fully realize the depth of artistic opportunity present in the overlap between these two mediums. Ben aims to push the boundaries of fluidity in sculpture, crafting pieces which feel rife with movement even when stationary, and to also revolutionize fine-arts stop motion animations through the use of sculptural techniques and innovative fabrication methods; to give breath-filled, animated life to sculptures, as well as create animations in which the processes of creation and functioning of each animated object feel as full of life and as worthy of exploration as does the final animation itself. 

Please join us for the reception and meet the artist! Reception will be held on Friday, June 2, from 5-6:30pm, in the Wilson Hall Gallery.
