The Space After: Nina Bellucci, Erika Hess, and Stacy Mohammed


March 25 – May 7, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, March 25 6 – 7:30pm
Sherman Gallery, 775 Commonwealth Ave.

This collaborative exhibition brings together the work of three Boston University Alumni—Nina Bellucci (CFA ’09), Erika Hess (CFA ‘09), and Stacy Mohammed (CFA ‘10)—whose paintings interact across both aesthetic and thematic concerns. Through image, color, and form, the three artists respond to everyday observations interpreted through personal histories and narratives.

Erika Hess recalls pop images of the 1970’s in her paintings that are focused on the middle class and women to present an aesthetic of the mundane. Stacy Mohammed and Nina Bellucci are both engaged with the concept of spirituality. Mohammed’s work combines Catholic saints and symbols with marketing images and slogans, while Bellucci’s paintings explore the spirituality inherent in the domestic objects of everyday life.
