Happy winter, all! Below you will see some images from my final review at SVA from this past fall. The review was a critique of my production from the semester by two instructors who I hadn't had during the course of that semester. Overall, I received fairly positive responses from my review committee, with some good, constructive criticism and suggestions of where to procede next in my work. Several of the works that were present during the review I posted previously (on my last post), so below you will see images that will be new to most of you. I hope you enjoy!
A one-of-a-kind photo etching, from a photo of one of Juli Anna's ancestors.
A xerox-transfer of a detail of one of my roommates' photographs; my "response project" for a paper I wrote on a 12th century Chinese Album Leaf.
Another one-of-a-kind etching. This image of a deer became like a muse to me this semester, as you will see below...
here it is on a leaf!
and again, on several leaves (lower right), attempting to look wind-blown...
and collaged on a small painting,
and a small version painted onto a larger (4'x3') painting,
and a large painted version (30x40in),
In addition to the deer, and the etchings, and the etchings of the deer, there were some other abstract paintings, such as:
and a construction or two, including the following "window" which I fabricated from scratch (the "panes" are pieces of rusted metal); overall, it is roughly 15x20in.:
And finally, a (partial) installation view of the work, which will hopefully give you an idea of the scale of some of the pieces:
Well, that's it for now. Classes have started so I am busy with work again, but I will post again in the future, when I've accumulated enough work to make it worth my while (knowing me, probably some 5 or 6 months from now) So, until next time!
