- ItemLove-cheek, Azteca(2015) Hamami, Aydin; Klank, Richard; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)The act of painting is one of a physical, visceral nature, in which the intangible is made tangible, removed from our world in such a way as you allow us an abstract viewership, and intimately tied to our own physicality. The mind of the painter is one that must be simultaneously present and absent from the world of the moment. The following is a recounting of events that have led to the understanding of studio practice that my work exemplifies today, and a dissection of the significance of the actions of the artist within the studio space as well as in relation to the art object at its end.
- ItemMal-Content(2017) Brooks, Curtis W.; Richardson, William C; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)Mal-Content is a project culminating in an exhibition including several laser-cut etchings, a large vinyl application to the wall, and a small book of symbols. This document consists of visual documentation and an edited transcript of a self-interview about the genesis, intellectual basis, and critical and material realities of the project. Mal-Content explores the nature of information as it is carried, rather than what it carries, through application of successive processes of technological and manual manipulations.
- ItemMethods of Making(2007-05-15) Lock, Benjamin Christopher; Ruppert, John; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)I am drawn to tools, their applications, and the way things work. The action and process of manipulating and transforming material to create formal visual statements is vital to my sculpture. I utilize and respond to material and process, allowing for the work to develop through its creation. Relationships of form and space interest me. Not only do I find beauty in material, it also exists in the tension and the power of a space within or between forms. These interactions in my work help formulate the visual language through which the metaphor is present. I hope to capture and express a sensibility to which one can relate. This thesis will further discuss the manner in which I make sculpture. It will be a compliment to the artwork and an attempt to put to words the conceptual basis for the forms I create and the spaces they compose.
- ItemRural Decay Almanac(2016) Winkler, Dane; Sham, Foon; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)Rural Decay Almanac is an exhibition comprised of sculptural objects and video/sound documentation. The following is an explanation of inspiration and personal history, a proposed schematic/manual for the objects in the gallery, and other contemporary artists I frame myself within. The front half of The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland as well as the atrium space directly outside the gallery hosts the work: four large scale Site-Responsive sculptural objects, and one video/sound loop projection. The library of materials comes from a farm site in Ijamsville, MD which has been re-purposed into the structures. As a sister work, the process of dismantling documentation is shown alongside the objects in a sound/video installation. The gallery space is transformed into a meticulously controlled environment via hard objects, sound, light, and video.
- ItemSeparately Together(2022) Katt, Elizabeth C; Strom, Justin D; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)This body of work explores aspects of our Covid-19 experience for the past two plus years. The unknown quality of the virus in its beginning, people going alone to the hospital with no loved one by their side, unpredictable outcomes from infection, and preventable deaths enabled by incompetent leadership has become the subject matter I explore in my creative practice. Public health officials and healthcare professionals knew what to do but the effort was fragmented, confusing, and poorly led in the United States. The lack of coordinated response, the marginalization of public health officials, the inconsistent messaging, incorrect information, and the use of a public health crisis as a political tool were exasperating and disorienting. The exploitation, willful ignorance, or disregard that impacts people with less power and means make me want to scream.
- ItemA Well Within A Sinking Ship(2018) Bryant, Hugh Condrey; Collis, Shannon; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)A Well Within A Sinking Ship is an exhibition of sculptures in The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland. It comprises four sculptural works exploring formal and structural possibilities within the context of destruction, reclamation, and salvage. In the following, I explain the basis of my creative practice and subject matter referenced and then provide descriptions and reasoning behind the sculptures presented in the exhibition.
