Studio Art Intern, Jennifer Ontiveros, presents her show:

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.
