Senior Art Thesis
How do you balance conflicting emotions that disrupt your inner peace?
The ephemeral nature of emotion shows how we embrace the constant changes in our lives and outgrow our old selves. Inevitably, we go through changes and self-exploration, which force each of us to endure difficult inner transitions. Through microscopic collages of the subject’s tears and solar photogravure prints, I attempted to depict emotional internalization and externalization that reveal the private personal struggle.
This project was made possible with the support of the Steven Daniel Smallen Memorial Fund and the Art Department Fund for Seniors. I would like to personally thank Bret Olsen, John Powell, and Robert Knight for helping me immensely these past years.
