AbstractMy work reflects an effort to channel memories and experiences onto the canvas. I paint about pain and internalized struggle where language is often inadequate to describe these effects. I am interested in creating psychological spaces with figures whose unease is uttered through their exposure and isolation. Innocence warped by experience. The process becomes a personal and painterly emotional rollercoaster reflecting life’s weight and struggles.

Painting Parallels: MFA Thesis - Painting and DrawingKovacevski, Olivia (2014-05)I cut and collage shapes to locate parallel meanings. I trust in the directness of mark making and deploy a formal vocabulary to reveal the structure of my thoughts. The artwork originates in the freedom of play and retains an intuitive child-like quality that I nurture through the sheer joy of making.
Asiaticoside : MFA Thesis - Painting and DrawingAn, Junmo (2014-05)I am wandering around the things that intrigue me, the beginning of maturation, the remains of life—such as ashes and bones, the objects that link our lives with our deaths. I walk on, like a column of ants. I feel something draws me, but I do not know what and where it is. I just follow the crumbs of ideas; life, death, and love.
Sweat Equity: MFA Thesis - Painting & DrawingLittle, Christian (2015-05)My work examines a voyeur culture preoccupied with sex, drama and the lives of others. It is not my intention to offer a representation of “reality”, but a simulation of an imagined actuality. The nature of this contradiction influences my painting process from conception to resolution. My paintings are simultaneously voyeuristic and participatory, erotic and sterile, stiff and fluid, analytic and absurd. I am aware of the dimensional limitations of traditional painting, and I believe the paintings’ audience is savvy as well, yet I urge the audience to believe these two dimensions to spill out of the hand-constructed wood panels. I self-consciously use paint to address painting’s history and the use of illusion to create dynamic spatial relationships on a flat surface. Through the use of trompe l’oeil and decorative painting techniques, I construct conceivable yet strange spaces while deconstructing the communal notion of a shared reality.
