Posted on September 18, 2023

Professor Clayton Merrell and MFA candidate Steve Alexis are among the four artist featured in the fall 2023 issue of Table Magazine. In addition, Merrell is featured on the magazine’s cover.

“Merrell makes landscape paintings that encompass both the beauty and tragedy of the natural world,” Corinne Whiting writes, “‘I see my work as an attempt to create something like an honest contemporary landscape idiom, he says.'”

“Alexis makes abstract works that speak to the ideas and emotions that mold him day to day,” Whiting writes, “‘Whether those feelings and sentiments are explicit or, if I’m even fully aware of them,’ he says, ‘they manifest through abstract forms.'”
