“Virtual Being” | Lillie Grace

The exhibition highlights a series of watercolors examining the construction of individual identity through choices, options and chance.  These visual illustrations express the artist’s interest in exploring the manner in which conscious choice and unlooked for chance directs an individual along a path that both expands and limits possibilities through the concept virtual beings.

It explores the concept of the potential within personal development and the way that this potential is focused by limiting the embryonic formation of many selves, or Virtual Beings, which one could have been.

A lifelong resident ofMontana, Ms. Grace has recently focused on Extended Studio Art and Art History at MSU-Billings.  She feels that arts impact depends on the basic three legs of medium, concept, and viewer perception through participation and that a change or omission of one will weaken the intent of the art.

“Virtual Beings” was exhibited July 30, 2012 – September 28, 2012.
