McMurry University senior Jeremiah Flynn invites you to his senior art exhibition “The Manipulation of eh Right Hemisphere” April 17-22, 2016, in the Amy Graves Ryan Gallery. The show will feature recent works of film and digital photography.

Viewing hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. An artist’s talk will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, April 17, and a reception is scheduled from 5-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, in the Amy Graves Ryan East Foyer.

Born in Temple, TX, and raised in Austin, TX, Flynn was introduced to different styles of art at a young age. Out of all the different types of media, he believes photography is the greatest.

“If a picture is taken correctly, it gives the viewer a story, a way to open up their imagination. I have been inspired by multiple photographers such as John Saxton and Ansel Adams. Their photographs engulf the viewer and make them think they are one with the picture.”

“A photograph is usually looked at — seldom looked into.” This is a quote by Ansel Adams that is nothing less than the truth. The average time a viewer spends on a piece of art is less than ten seconds. When I take a picture, I am aiming on capturing a moment that makes the viewer stand back and reflect on the piece. I want the viewer asking, “Why?” I want the viewer to imagine what it would be like to be in the place the photo was taken.  Imagination is the most powerful tool we can provide. I enjoy both film and digital photography and spend many hours in the darkroom manipulating my images through the developing process.”
