Episode 57: This week our editor speaks with Meg Aubrey, a painter and professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. Gaining inspiration from her own surroundings, Aubrey focuses on the landscapes and figures in modern suburban neighborhoods and how they represent feelings of emptiness and loneliness within such a structured lifestyle. During the interview, Aubrey mentions influences including Alex Katz, a figurative artist linked to the Pop art movement, and American realist painter Edward Hopper. Her current work will appear in the exhibition Domiciled, opening 7-10PM, this Friday, September 7, 2012, at Whitespace Gallery. The work will be on view until Saturday, October 13.
