• Disconnect: The Persistence of Isolation in Contemporary Existence

      Carson, Christian; Henderson, Charity; The College at Brockport (2010-05-01)
      This paper discusses a series of paintings exploring the effects of isolation in the human experience. The focus concerns both a specifically twenty-first century manner and a more universal framework. Drawing inspiration from her past experiences, the author also references a number of artists such as Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, and Gerhard Richter. Completed in both egg tempera and oil paint, the discussed paintings feature a variety of styles to raise nuanced questions about the nature of isolation.
