For the past seven summers, I have had the opportunity to work with high school students during BU's Visual Arts Summer Institute. Each summer, I haul my art supplies to the 5th floor of 855 Commonwealth Avenue and set up a second home. The studio space I have used the past two summer faces east and has incredible views of downtown Boston.
When I was a student at BU, I remember being surprised at the amazing sunsets that I could watch from Comm. Ave. Living in a city can be disorienting and it's easy to feel disconnected from nature. I loved taking time each day to stop and enjoy the view.
The routine of going into the studio every day and seeing my work with fresh eyes is an exciting part of my process. I love being able to spread out my supplies and give myself time and space to find new connections between my ideas and materials.
Over the summer, worked on a few new bodies of work including Paper Quilts and Cycles. I am back in my apartment now and have been making some new Paper Quilts, working with friends to create new college pieces, and brainstorming some ideas for new projects. Stay tuned...
bioGraphical @ Gallery 5
February 1-14, 2009
855 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215
Opening Reception: Friday, February 6 | 6-9pm
Located on the fifth floor of the College of Fine Arts, Gallery 5 enhances the quality of life of the undergraduate students in the School of Visual Arts by offering them a professional exhibition space near their studios where they are able to plan, propose, and install their own exhibitions. Students consult with the Visual Arts Faculty and administrative office, but are responsible for all aspects of their exhibition’s curation, including selection, display, and advertising. These exhibitions rotate on a biweekly basis during the regular academic year.
bioGraphical is a solo show that I proposed this semester. The show includes work I created over the past year while studying abroad in Venice, Italy, WOOFING on a farm in San Polo in Chanti, Italy and while working in my undergraduate studio in Boston, MA. The show includes line drawings and photographic "sketches," paintings and mixed-media drawings.
