This week’s featured artist is Dirk Leichty, a senior, with a sample of one of his five life-size zombie figures. As part of the requirements for his senior show in April, Leichty is creating an outdoor installation, applying a comic book format to a three-dimensional space.

“The figures will be layered in deep space in a way that the visibility from any given angle only conveys a limited part of the whole,” Leichty said of the eventual completed project.

Leichty added that it will be “an imperfect translation of a comic book into three dimensions that is analogous to the imperfect animation of a dead corpse into a walking zombie.”

Keep an eye out for more of Leichty’s work and that of other seniors in the Artist’s Corner before their gallery openings over the coming weeks.
