Noumenon Objectifying in Four Parts, 2005
assemblage, 19” x 48” x 6”


Steve Brudniak began creating his assemblage sculptures infused with science elements in the 1980’s and soon found them being collected by venues such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the San Antonio Museum of Art and the El Paso Museum of Art, as well as numerous private collections, and written about in international art publications such as Art in America. Titled “Noumenon” after a term coined by philosopher Immanuel Kant to refer to an object as it is, independent of perception, his most current work is a visual paradox. The eccentric, mechanical appearance of his creations made of metal, wood and glass contrasts with the surprisingly emotional human stories that underlie and accompany each piece. In addition to his sculpture, Brudniak has a fascinating array of interests and is also involved in experimental performance, music, filmmaking and acting. He can be seen in Richard Linklater’s Waking Life and other films.

SRoom to Breathe, 2004
mixed media installation, dimensions variable


Cameron Schoepp Schoepp is an artist who has lived and worked in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for the past 23 years. In addition to teaching for the Department of Art & Art History at TCU and maintaining an active exhibition schedule, in recent years he has had several public art commissions installed in Fort Worth. Since 1984 he has collaborated with architects Mark and Peter Anderson on installation-based projects that have been seen at The Connemara Sculpture Park in Dallas, the Center of Contemporary Art in Seattle, Washington, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Harvard University, and in a commission sponsored by the Alaska State Council on the Arts. He describes his work “Room to Breathe” as something to experience rather than passively view. This room-sized installation, utilizing carpet in which ambiguous, stylized text has been embedded, calls for the viewer’s total attention and interaction.

In association with the exhibition, the artists will discuss their work in illustrated, hour-long lectures in the Fine Arts Auditorium, Room 148. Steve Brudniak will speak on Thursday, October 16 and Cameron Schoepp on Thursday, November 6. Both lectures will begin at 12:30 PM.

The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public.

Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 10p.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 12 - 5p.m.
Located on first floor of the Fine Arts Building, UTA Campus, 502 S. Cooper St., Arlington, Texas.
