2020 BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS GRADUATE
EMPHASIS IN PAINTING
The work I create encapsulates moments or memories into containers serving the function of a time capsule and the failures they may carry when aging or sealed. In the Greek mythology of Pandora’s box the containers failure to stay closed relate to a child’s curiosity to open the time capsule, they made at school.
In a way, my process of painting and layering assemblage creates this same sediment; which I seek to preserve or contain in order to illustrate the struggle we as people have when trying to control time and its records. Influenced by concepts of renewal versus removal, the attempts in withholding captured experiences, and mortality, my work aims to document my present environment and experiences which result in the fragile capsule and vessel of movement, light, and feeling.
BFA THESIS PROJECT
My intention for the BFA Show was to follow through with the concepts of failed containers and showcase a set of paintings that will have materials that have been sourced from my personal family and local thrift stores.
