May 2nd MFA Exhibition

The piece I chose to write about from the MFA exhibition in the Katherine E. Nash Gallery was "Skin Crawl" by Jon Mahnke. The piece captured my eye right away from across the gallery with its bright red/pink color and cohesiveness. It was a pigmented inkjet on a series of panels that depicted a zoomed in view of the skin. I thought it was really cool how the picture went deeper and more detailed into the skin as you went from left to right. It makes the piece flow really well. I enjoyed the realistic look and how detailed the pictures were. The color was really nice and eye-catching and overall, I think this piece was really successful.
