  • 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 ...
  • Whitt, Sarah (2013)
    A conversation with a friend, which likened human yearning to moths drawn to light, inspired my curiosity. I learned moths use the moon to navigate flightlines; a closer light may prompt them to over correct, clustering ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Genares, Angel (2014)
    During the year, my thesis shifted from staging a live social event in the gallery to making records of such interactions. This change came about when I began working on the drawings to complement and contrast with the ...
  • Murphy, Shannon (2014)
    My project begins with two things that I always come back to: home and craft. A significant inspiration for me comes from traditional crafts such as quilting, knitting, and embroidery. In a home, these skills create objects ...
  • Li, Sharon (2014)
    What happens after hours, when work is done and day folds into night? For my thesis I looked at the nightlife subculture of my hometown Shanghai, and the dramas cultivated in its closed environments. These paintings are ...
  • 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 ...
  • Aguais, Camila (2014)
    My moving body is the driving force of my painting and drawing. In my work, I seek to render dance by leaving a trace of my movement on the ground and constructing visual representations of movement. I read my work as maps ...
  • 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 ...
  • Riccobene, Brianna (2015)
    What would happen if every human on earth suddenly fell into pieces? My work aims to explore the rebuilding process and relationships formed through recovering from such an event. Construction begins slowly, as only remnants ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ortiz, Angelica (2015)
    The idea of home has always been important to me. The three places that I consider home are East Palo Alto, California; San Ignacio, Mexico; and Haverford, Pennsylvania. Be it in a positive or negative light, these places ...
  • Garcia, Mar (2015)
    Of particular interest to me are transgressive identities—identities that transgress societal boundaries and definitions. In my life and in my work, I am acutely aware of the tension between my innate human desperation for ...
  • 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, ...
