What We Are Looking For is What is Looking

What We Are Looking For is What is Looking

Marian Art Gallery at Mount Mary University presents What We Are Looking For is What is Looking, a solo exhibition by Michael Velliquette, a mixed media artist known for his elaborate collages and sculptures made from cut paper. For his project at the Marian Gallery, Velliquette created a site-specific, collaged-based mural that covers the entire surface of the gallery’s 1800 square feet of wall space. In preparation for the exhibition, Velliquette painted and drew unique surface treatments on over 100 large rolls of drawing paper. Over the course of the installation the paper rolls were cut, layered, and pinned to the walls in vibrant, abstract arrangements.
