The Undiscovered: Sculptures, Drawings & Animation

January 9 - February 15, 2017

Barrows Exhibition Rotunda
Hopkins Center

The Undiscovered is an exploration of the role of God as they undergo the process of designing beings. I have drawn some of my inspiration from organic and natural forms like vegetables, plants, and sea life. Raw vegetables act as the basis for my own imagined creatures that began as a study on lines and color. This later progressed into vivid hues that enhance the quadrants of each creature. These small-scale drawings became the genesis of the 3D forms in my exhibit, which are wall sculptures that provide an exploration of the paper mâché process and are my own way of bringing my drawings into the third dimension.  Lastly, the animation loop that populates one side of the exhibit wall is a way of bringing the drawings to life through pulsating movements. The animation can be viewed everyday from 4pm to 10pm.

Containing Chaos

October 24 - November 22, 2016

"Much of my work involves introducing elements of chaos and randomness, which I then use as stimuli to respond to. For Containing Chaos, I allowed these elements to the forefront. Working intuitively, I let the paint run where it did, directing in a very limited way, the placement of the colors on the surfaces. Letting go of control and expectations, the randomness on the canvas informed my decisions. The way I see it, all endeavors to bring something into being are a collaboration between personal individual efforts and the often chaotic forces present within the world that are beyond control. The law of entropy says things tend to disorder. Remembering this when setting about planning, organizing, and structuring within the world and especially when things fall apart can instill a sense of peace whilst working within the chaos. Embrace entropy."
