Visual Thesis is Finished!

I’m thrilled to announce that my visual thesis is finally installed in the Reed Gallery for the DAAPWorks 2014 Exhibition!  “Hand-Wrought”, 2014, Mixed Media, is a work that delves into repetitive thought, and a desire to change the past.  Through the usage of repetitive action and video, I portray the thought process that occurs in recalling a memory, and replaying the sequence in order for some sort of change to occur.  The work also discusses the idea of finding and creating comfort through any means and materials possible.

This work will be on display starting April 22nd from 5-9PM during the DAAPWorks Opening 2014.  If you’re in the Greater Cincinnati area or close to the University of Cincinnati, please stop by and show your support to the graduating seniors!

The last few weeks have been rather busy due to the finishing of the semester, travels, and studio time.  However, during all the hustle and bustle, I was able to have my work that was fabricated in the last few weeks photographed!  You’ll find new works, varying in both scale and medium, under the Sculpture tab and Woobie Art tab.

Thank you so much for following my work thus far!  Please, if you have any questions, feel free to email me under the Contact tab.  You’ll also be able to find my resume, and my most recent thesis on my site, so feel free to look at those also.
