UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
My greatest interests lay in the processes of the world. It is the minutiae of detail, documentation of the overlooked, and the desire to accentuate processes over their culmination that have come to define my work over the last two pandemic-limiting years.
Utilizing photography and video projection, I aim to capture the emotive characteristics of glass process and nature: gloryhole light reflecting like the sun dipping below the horizon, the color of the sky shifting the same as cooling glass, the ripple of cresting waves like flame moving over the body of a piece. A marriage of intricacies, seemingly incompatible, coming together to a seamless exploration of the meditative and esoteric qualities that exist in both.
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Art Department is excited to present the annual Juried Student Exhibition, which runs from March 14–April 8, 2022, in Gallery 101. Included in the exhibition will be UWRF Art Department student artwork representing media including: painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, glass, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, and design.
