“There is a lot of text in the world; it spills out imperfectly perfect”
“I am experimenting with different flexible materials. I want to make strong sculptures that still appear fluid. I explore this through various methods of attachment. I am inspired by elements of road kill and intestines. I am often conceptually thinking about the squishy, fragile, and gooey strands that exist inside of protective forms, like the protective nature of ribs and innards. I want viewers of my work to be confronted with feelings of revolt, and discomfort. I want the grotesqueness of my work to visually soak into their minds”
I will post photos for each students work in the gallery. Including their artist statements.
“In My Making I am experimenting with what works, and what doesn’t. This is the best way for me to learn. I choose materials that I like, and I watch as I turn them into new forms. My inspiration comes from my past art teachers, my mom, and the people that I surround myself with. My Love for all art forms is expanding. I want people to enjoy my hard work, to look carefully at it, and know that it comes from a deep place. Sharing my work is something I love to do”
Again I need to thank all my students for teaching me, more than I ever could have imagined. I learned from you as a teacher, I was inspired as an artist, and felt I grew as a person. This group is fearless, experimenting with materials, leaving comfort zones, exploring areas of mixed media and sculpture that they never thought possible. I am so proud and amazed by your dedication, your thoughtfulness, your skill, your conceptual thinking, and you unlimited drive. I couldn’t have asked for a better studio experience. What I learned from you will help me to be a better person, artist and teacher. I am so thankful for you all. As I have said before I want to support you all as you endeavor in careers in the art, or if you are purely exploring. Send me portfolios, post pictures of your work here, where we can all discuss it, you need recommendations or help applying to college, I will help you find resources to the best of my ability. I am a resource for you as artists and people! Let me help you! Again I am so PROUD, I can’t even contain it.
