d berman gallery presents work by three young artists, Zoë Charlton, Holly Fischer, and Edward Monovich. Each of them is, or soon will be, a graduate of the MFA Studio Program at the University of Texas at Austin. Charlton, whose work has been exhibited previously at d berman, will show representational paintings on paper, scenes which delve into relations among the races in America. Fischer, who will receive her MFA this spring, creates partially abstracted life-sized nude figures in white ceramic. Monovich will present works on paper (monotypes and drawings with collage elements) that ask questions about contemporary culture.

Charlton received her BFA from Florida State University, Tallahassee. She currently lives and works in the Baltimore/Washington area and teaches at American University.
Charlton was featured in Beyond the Academy: Encouraging New Talent from Texas exhibited at Arthouse, Austin; Out of the Ordinary at The Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; Four Walls, Three Years at Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, Austin; as well as gallery exhibitions throughout Texas and the U.S. She says that her “investigation of stereotypical imagery challenges my audience to question and transcend racist character concepts and to realize that negative racial stereotypes do not help to define individuals.”

Fischer is from North Carolina, received her BA from Meredith College in Raleigh, and will move to Savannah after she completes her graduate studies. She has exhibited in Austin and North Carolina. She says, “My goal is to create work that provokes an intriguing social engagement into sexual politics by questioning stereotypes and confronting the traditionally assumed structure of the gaze.”

Monovich, who now lives and works in New Jersey, received his BA from Kalamazoo Collage in Michigan. He was also included in Beyond the Academy: Encouraging New Talent from Texas and has exhibited widely in New York, Texas, Michigan and Colorado. He says that his works “focus on topical subject matter and the dissolution of hierarchically motivated distance between drawing and onlooker.”

The University of Texas studio art program is a strong influence on Austin’s art community, and d berman gallery is pleased to feature some of the outstanding artists it produces.
