BLUSH – An Artistic Evolution

blush-statement

This month, I’m excited to debut work in a duo exhibition with Rose Jaffe at the Mansion at Strathmore. The work I’m including spans nearly two years. It traces an evolution from representational painting towards abstraction and brand new sculptural work.

Making the decision to go to grad school

Working in the studio this summer

This summer, I began something new. I’m attending the nearby Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. I enrolled in the Masters of Fine Art in Studio Art (MFAST ), a small, interdisciplinary MFA program. “Interdisciplinary” means I work alongside all types of visual artists – from sculptors to performance artists. This was important to me, because I’m exploring new mediums and no longer consider myself strictly a 2-d artist. The program is low-residency. It includes part-time study during the regular Fall and Spring semesters, and in the Summer, an intensive 6-week on-campus session (the “residency” part). I’ve just completed my first summer session, and I’ll go back to Baltimore the next three summers. Continue reading
