"The human figure has always fascinated me, as one of many fascinations. Part of my fascination involves the psychological and sociological aspect of being human: self. 自我, 正如我在整个项目中所诠释的那样, 是uedbet官网如何感知自己, 你的个人身份. My goal for this project was to combine the human figure with the hideous self, 一个消极的自我."
Tran中方 is from Ho Chi Minh City, majoring in graphic design and data analytics.
在这个项目中, I have collected stories of students about what greatly impacted their lives this year. 故事的范围从挑战后的有益教训, 心碎的真理, 对生命中一些细微的时刻. This signifies that life is a spectrum of colors, filled with hardships, joys, and lessons."
“我接受了家庭棉被的想法，并付诸实践. I consider these traceable heirlooms as an evolution of painted family portraits, 哪些用艺术来展示一个家庭的财富和重要性. 而一幅委托制作的油画可能很贵, 非常正式的, 让人想起一个逝去的时代, a handmade quilt belongs to a more common class of people and feels more representative of my own family."
Alyssa Duckett 来自伊利诺伊州的杰内索.，主修平面设计，辅修英语.
"I am inspired by gothic and surrealist works of the past, as well as postmodern paintings. I enjoy creating works that showcase the beauty in subjects otherwise classified as "horror.""
克里斯Ferman 来自休斯顿, 德州, majoring in multimedia journalism and mass communication and minoring in graphic design.
“想要摆脱数字图像失真和故障, 我想办法让我的艺术走出电脑. 在国家地理杂志上使用脱脂产品, 结合摄影和暗室打印, 我创作了这一系列的海报. 灵感来自PSA广告和网络恐怖节目, these posters show a distortion of the natural world through its high contrast and smeared depictions of familiar objects and sights."
"在我的研究中, I am looking at Japanese Ukiyo-e prints during the late Tokugawa Period (1603-1868), 进入明治早期(1868-1912). 这一时期日本发生了巨大的变化, 海军准将马修·佩里强行开放日本港口, which cultivated a large amount of cultural exchange between Japan and the West."
伊丽莎白·霍德 is from Brownsville, 德州, majoring in a studio arts and graphic design.
"Religion helps us to feel better about death because we want to believe that there is life after death. 我相信死后，那就是uedbet官网的终结——uedbet官网只是腐烂. 我想以一种幼稚的方式来面对死亡这样的话题, 不把它当回事, 这一切都符合我个人的恐怖/可爱审美. This series of sculptures will make people face the inevitable while still "sugar-coating" death and making a mockery of it."
汉娜Knuth 来自伊利诺伊州的罗克岛., majoring in art history and communication studies and minoring in multimedia journalism and mass communication.
"My inquiry project explores the revival of Impressionism in the 21st century through the lens of Claude Monet. His magnificent artworks have been brought to life with the development of immersive 博物馆 exhibits, which have also impacted the display of other artists of this late 19th-century movement. This project includes an examination of the communication and marketing tactics immersive exhibits use to draw audiences, as well as comparing past perceptions of Monet’s work with today's view of the artist."
“对于我的项目，我想设计一系列简单的, 极简主义的线条艺术作品，在意义上保持他们的重量, 而不是艺术的视觉吸引力. I chose to take the classic political cartoon and give it a more feminine artistic style. I’m choosing to do small pieces that purposely are structured to begin a conversation, 让人心烦, specifically those who are voting for the continued ban on abortions and those who refuse to acknowledge the Iranian crisis and so many other countries."
"I worked not with a particular tone, feeling, or meaning, but pattern instead. 我的灵感来自于自然界中出现的线条:树枝, 字段, 静脉, 破碎的玻璃, 河流系统, 举几个例子. Searching for these patterns and translating them into a variety of mediums freed my mind from the pressure of creating something profound or beautiful. 这个功就是. 然而，它仍然充满了感情."
"My favorite part of being creative and telling stories is evoking strong emotions in audience members. I love knowing something really stuck with someone and made them think in a way they never have before. 这个故事, 行星伊甸园, was a fun challenge where I got to mess with some common story tropes for Slasher-Horror type stories. And my hope here is to leave the audience stuck on the painful sting of the feeling of betrayal."
“为了给空间带来更多的生命，并在新的工作中轮换, my intention is to propose a new collection of works to be displayed in the lobby, 同时提供藏品的背景信息, and drawing on evidence from research I have done on the importance of the uedbet体育 Art Collections and the 视觉文化中心."

"Freedom in mind brought me a chance to explore my ability and creativity. 而不是把自己限制在一个确定的话题, I am given ample space to express my feelings at the moment I created art. This gave me the power to really enjoy the process, and new ideas just came in a very natural way. "Go with the flow" and "Never plan for how the art look" are the techniques that I used. I can really enjoy each stage of the process: from sketching and creating line art, 运用类似的颜色，增加光和影. This project is about not only exploring myself but also discovering how to effectively express my thoughts and ideas through visual language with an open-minded attitude."
