Montserrat College of Art is pleased to present the ocean doesn’t want me today, Angela Malchionno’s installation of printed pages of relief printing and silkscreen techniques. As a Massachusetts native transplanted to the Midwest, she hopes to explore imagery that illustrates the similarities and differences between the two places.

Malchionno embraces absurdist sensibilities and irreverent humor to create works on paper and sculpture. Fluorescent vinyl, text fragments, regular and irregular geometric forms, odd color combinations and deflated phalluses are her repertoire. Driven by a sense of intellectual curiosity and play, Malchionno borrows from a wealth of sources and motifs—finding inspiration in song lyrics, book passages, and popular culture.

Angela Malchionno works in print media, fiber, and installation. She received her MFA in Printmaking from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (2007) and her BFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (2002). Angela teaches printmaking and drawing at Washington University and serves as the Curator of Gallery Proper, a store-front exhibition space at All Along Press in St Louis MO . Her work has been exhibited recently at Proteus Gowanus (Brooklyn, NY); Southside Gallery (Oxford, MS); and Urban Institute for Contemporary Art (Grand Rapids, MI), and in St. Louis at the Craft Alliance; Washington University; Busch School of Law; and Philip Slein Gallery.
