  • Wyant, Cara (2014)
    As a premedical, fine arts student with a concentration in sculpture, my work as a whole is influenced by the relationships between the opposing science and art worlds. Throughout the art-making process I diligently try ...
  • Keep, Claudia (2015)
    My work examines the liminal space occupied by young people and the effects of that space upon identity and self-representation. In my larger-than-life portrait paintings, I use realism and controlled fiction in an attempt ...
  • Fawcett, Elizabeth (2015)
    People tell stories across multiple mediums and I have always enjoyed storytelling accomplished by means other than writing. Many Russian tales were told orally and through illustrations as many peasants were illiterate, ...
  • Pierce, Hilary (2014)
    Spirituality comes to me most easily through music. This project is a representation of how music has inspired me to move as a performing artist, and how that movement in turn has inspired me to create forms that complement ...
  • Etzkorn, Alexis (2015)
    Through dialogue across the mediums of painting and sculpture, I explore art making as the cultivation of an intimate relationship between artist and subject. The still life paintings develop this relationship through my ...
  • Xie, Grace (2014)
    Candles, once the most reliable source for light, are now popular as memorials, religious and romantic decorations, or as symbols of the past. The real candle I made lost its light due to the presence of the wax—the very ...

    Larsen, Cordelia (2017)
    Haitian Vodou has long been stigmatized and tainted, warped by Western projections that connect the religion to witchcraft and death. Historically, Vodou, a syncretic religion practiced chiefly in Haiti and the Haitian ...
  • Wen, Connie (2017)
    Art is something that I have always loved from the bottom of my heart. It is a way for me to communicate stories and ideas; it is a way for me to keep myself awake during classes; it is a way for me to understand the world. ...
  • Nguyen, Chau (2017)
    I paint messy. I paint when I am tired, agitated, relaxed, miserable, in despair. I paint utterly unprepared. The only things governing my brushstrokes, then, are fragments of my memory and the canvas before me. I paint ...
  • LeBouvier, Julia (2011)
  • Schilit, Jordan (2013)
    To me, art is funky and random. To me, art is spiky. To me, art is both harsh and delicate. To me, art is a challenge to carry. To me, art doesn’t like sitting around—even if it’s resting on the floor. To me, art doesn’t ...
  • Seto, Katharine (2012)
    Art is like a person—organic, complex, and emotional. Art’s differences cannot be defined by intellectual labels that only loosely describe what a viewer sees or feels in a piece of art. Only the artist has a full understanding ...
  • Power, Kelsey (2012)
    I recognize a certain irony in illustration as an art form because its existence and inspiration are predicated on the written word. Though I believe art points to beauty and must stand on its own, my work strives to analyze ...
  • FitzPatrick, Kerry (2013)
    Using a language that has been heavily conditioned by the overwhelming visual stimuli characteristic of modern technology, I attempt to reinterpret iconography and mythology that has become somewhat trite and perhaps even ...
  • Lee, Marcia (2016)
    I am part of a generation of Asian-Americans who cannot speak the languages of their grandparents, who cannot fathom the struggles of their immigrant elders, and cannot begin to comprehend the extent of cultural disconnect ...
  • Sanchez, Christine (2012)
    Graffiti, in its most common form—name tagging—has always been a part of my life. In middle school, my classmates always tagged things—desks, walls, backpacks, sneakers, and so on. They scribbled down their thoughts wherever ...
  • Hernández, Vanessa (2013)
    The myth of the island Patmos of Greece (originally “Letois”, after Artemis, the daughter of Leto) is used as a metaphor in Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s Primero Sueño. According to the myth, Selene (the moon goddess), in ...
  • Cohen-Carroll, Natasha (2013)
    When I was young, I loved playing with my grandmother’s elbow skin; I was fascinated by the way in stayed in place, its elasticity, and the beautiful purple and green color of her veins. Her arm became a place of exploration ...
  • Rehm-Daly, Nate (2016)
    As technology changes, how do the ways we represent ourselves change? How do we represent ourselves in our artificial creations? As the boundaries between ourselves and robots become less clear, what does it mean to be ...
