  • Bai, Mimi Biyao (2017-05)
    Intersectionality is the overarching framework for my worldview. This term refers to the numerous, intersecting vertices of race, class, gender, etc., that affect an individual’s experience in society. Through this lens, ...
  • Free, Morgan Rose (2017-05)
    I have always been fixated on how nature and wilderness intersect with contemporary culture. Human beings are of the Earth, we are mammals derived from nature; yet we are so far removed from it. Nature is that wild thing ...
  • Ronner, James (2017-05)
    By presenting viewers with dissonantly affective conditions1 in corporeal spaces I seek the simultaneous erasure and collectivization of the individual. The paradoxical aim is to restore agency within the cacophonous ...
  • Zablocki, Alex M. (2017-05)
    My work is a marathon exercise in the deconstruction and adaptation of vessel aesthetics, form, function, conventions and histories. I remain alchemically adventurous by employing a wide range of materials, processes, ...
  • Synthesis 
    Brown, Cory (2017-05)
    Experimentation is the format through which I allow questioning and research to enter. I generally have a good idea of what I plan to make before I make it, but I am always open, and in fact, hold out hope for an in-process ...
  • Quade, Leana R. (2017-05)
    Three pieces from the show Pressure Points explore how an interaction with artwork can change perspective. Viewers are offered new ways of seeing and perceiving materials; the use of time, light and observation pique the ...
  • Graber, Gabrielle Grace (2017-05)
    I make these things because they are a release to make. Most people are scared of them. They describe them as haunting. They are aware of them as clay, they relate to the objects as figurative sculptures. For me, these are ...
  • Griggs, Lea (2017-05)
    This exhibition, Landscape Survey 1, provides various types of creative techniques to investigate, identify, analyze, record and interpret the aesthetic landscape. Interpretation is essential in providing the knowledge and ...
  • Lee, YehRim (2017-05)
    In the U.S. I started to use this awareness to subvert masculine traditions and re-interpret them for my own practice as a maker. Here, I am learning to balance the best of both the Masculine and Feminine, just as I am ...
  • Invisible 
    Wang, Jiayi (2018-05)
    “Making the invisible visible” is the major theme of my work. I prefer to understand the world through direct sensations of vision, hearing or touch rather than some dry, abstract concepts. For example, time, data transfer ...
  • Easterbrook, Ruth (2019-05)
    Objects hold stories, both from where they came from and the accumulated memories gathered from the people around them. As the maker of these pieces, I bring my childhood with its strong ties to place and family. As artist ...
  • Monzon, Andres (2019-05)
    My thesis is comprised of two series of ceramic objects that deal with the construction of identity through the process of remembering, which inherently involves forgetting. The etymology of Oblivion, from the Latin word ...
  • Joyride 
    Weddell, Nicholas (2019-05)
    A rectangular handle transforms into interlocked leafy scales and a cylindrical interior warps and bulges as if a scarab from The Mummy is crawling beneath its surface. Thick batter-like splats of raucous color melt and ...
  • Gong, Yueyuan (2018-05)
    The interrelationship between negative and positive impulses is a topic which I have been fascinated with in recent years. My interest in this topic first originates from The Dark Side of the Light Chasers a psychology ...
  • Nelson, Liisa (2018-05)
    Like poetry, my work resists categorization. Mutually exclusive categories are mythical. I am not part of any movement. My primary motivations are curiosity and awe. Materials have transformative effects, have transcendent ...
  • Landreth, Grant (2018-05)
    My work is geometric: crisp and soft, cut, bound and folded. Forms, colors and profiles repeat, are handsewn and extruded from everyday materials such as canvas and clay. They are cut, aggregated and bound together into ...
  • Jiayi, Li (2019-05)
    Exploring the commonalities between my former home in China and my current home in the United States, I was able to create work to explore this connection. By utilizing the materials and concepts around me, I brought my ...
  • Loya, Diego (2019-05)
    As an artist I hold a responsibility to create works of art that are important to my journey, while keeping it relevant to others. Drawing inspiration from my Mexican heritage and the impactful stories of loved ones, I ...
  • Leopold-Sullivan, Samantha (2019-05)
    I explore this concept through making sculptures that physically represent “emotional bodies” and placing them in situations where they interact with human-made structures. I conceptualize the emotional body as a discrete ...
  • Madkour, Monir (2019-05)
    I began to use empathy as a starting point for some of my work seeing how it could be a useful tool to challenge a social status quo whereby we can trivialize the challenges of others. In the Outsiders exhibition, I used ...
