BFA student Broc Blegen seems to depict the concept of 'white' and 'whiteness' as a subtle, but sharp symbol of race identity and inequality within the austere confines of curatorial modern art. The 'modern' monochromatic palette is striking in its inscrutability, particularly in the white-on-white paper tapestry painted with the words "I WISH I WAS NOT WHITE.' I appreciate the precise use of a simple selection of materials (neon, paint, wood, paper) to convey a depth of intention and thought, which I believe is both clear and provocative.
