  • 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 ...
  • Gray 
    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 ...
  • Tennakoon, Pamudu (2015)
    Naturalistic is inspired by the natural world and my fascination with sensory associations. Inspirations for this work include the smell of rain and freshly cut grass in the spring, which makes me reminisce of springs past. ...
  • Tulsyan, Antara (2012)
    When I work on my art I enter a place of retreat, a meditative zone blocking out everything else. My art is a reflection of my feelings and moods that I cannot express in any other way. When I look at my sculptures, the ...
  • Mostue, Margaret (2014)
    Patterns in nature, light, and mathematics have always captivated and inspired me. Color is a vital part of any pattern, and varying its colors can vividly change the feelings induced in the viewer. I started playing the ...
  • Matus, Deborah (2014)
    My work engages biblical iconography and Catholic saints. I have created several etchings and monotypes that refer back to canonical images and subvert them. While spending a semester in Florence, I was surrounded by images ...
  • Shaheen, Rhianna (2014)
    Visual storytelling composes stories through the sequencing of images. Motion pictures do this especially well. In the storyboarding process, movies are first conceived as several juxtaposed hand-drawn images. Although the ...
