April 15-26, 2019
Join graduating BFA candidates Erin Hill, Liz Lally, Paris Acklen, Nate Lebsack, Jason Mendoza, Maria Barrientos, Eliese Donhardt, and Michelle Johnson for their capstone BFA exhibition. This exhibition demonstrates how each artist has built on distinct style, thought, and a sense of identity. Through digital media, photographs, prints, paintings, and sculptures, each artist arrives at a comprehensive collection of materials and conceptual discoveries, effectively creating a personal inventory. This exhibition is on-view through Friday, April 26th until 5pm.
Paris Acklen is a painter and printmaker who explores self-identity and depersonalization. She strips away individuality, leaving ambiguous figures in the work. She adores explosive colors and her painterly style is impressionistic.
Maria Barrientos explores digital reenactments focusing on universal nostalgia that represents the point and time between life and death. She questions our human existence which conjures feelings of wonder and confusion. (mariabarrientos.com)
Eliese Donhardt explores nature and life experiences to confront the past in order to gain insight into herself and the future. Each work builds on the last; sometimes subtle, other times not.
Erin Hill is a portrait photographer who examines the soul of individuals through facial features and emotions. Her work reflects her interest in the physical and mental aspects of people and the different artistic styles each subject possess. (througherinslens.com)
Michelle Johnson’s prints use line, color, form and text to address the concept of language, thought and communication. Her use of symbols, color combined with text convey the power they hold on society.
Liz Lally is an artist who has a particular interest towards painting. She depicts many portraits of celebrities as well as pop culture phenomena. Her paintings usually include many bold and bright colors.
Nate Lebsackis an interdisciplinary artist who works with a wide variety of mediums and thought processes. His most recent work focuses on self-reflection and past life experiences through sculpture.
Jason Mendoza is an interdisciplinary artist whose work tells stories through the arts that build bridges between people by sharing experiences. A process where the fundamental element is no longer the material ‘work of art’ but rather the development of an ‘experience’ that personally affects one’s life.
