Texas Tech School of Art Presents
“Why Are You Doing This To Me?”
Philip Monaghan + David Trinidad

LUBBOCK: Texas Tech School of Art proudly presents an exhibition of paintings by alumnus Philip Monaghan in the exhibition entitled “Why Are You Doing This To Me?” Philip Monaghan and David Trinidad. The exhibition will be presented in the Landmark Gallery from October 2 – December 13, 2015.  An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, October 3rd from 5:00-7:00 PM.  Philip Monaghan and David Trinidad will be in attendance.

“Why Are You Doing This To Me?” is a visual statement that lifts the scenes from David Trinidad’s poem “The Late Show” revealing the films referenced by the poem.  The paintings portray the mock pathos and camp qualities the nineteen films embody.  According to Trinidad, the result is sublime.  The scenes unfold as the poem does, each frame delivered like a film spools through a projector, capturing the staccato rhythm of the poem.  An often horrific quality prevails as each actress’s circumstance and character flaws result in them becoming victims, once again.  Holland Carter reviewing Monaghan’s previous exhibition of paintings based on a poem by Tim Dlugos wrote, “Mr. Monaghan is admirably faithful to the poem’s text. His layering of painted and printed images reflects its fractured structure. His light-touch, straight-faced brushwork is perfectly suited to its plain-style language and affectless, though dimly forbidding tone.”
