Why We Bend, A Multimedia Art Exhibition

‘why we bend' a Bachelor of Fine Arts honors thesis exhibition by Ximenna Hofsetz and Tiernan Warner brings together installation, digital, sculptural, and printed artwork. The main focus concerns memory; and its vague, formless, and hazy nature. The work also examines what would happen if cognitive space could be physically mapped? What would it look like in sculptural form? Memory erodes and distorts with time. We influence our memories as much as they affect us. Thus, just as relationships are ever-changing, and our memories of those we interact with constantly shifting, our relationships with our own memories are malleable and evolve through time. This transient nature of memory is depicted in the various stylistic means of this exhibition by referencing time and space as well as personal memories and ephemera in both concrete and abstract ways. ‘why we bend’ implements a variety of multimedia techniques to examine recollection and its hold on us.

You Are Here is a mixed-media installation, featuring the thesis work of BFA: Intermedia senior, Carissa Kalia Heinrichs. The installation consists of a hanging fabric structure, in which gallery visitors may interact with by both circumambulating and entering the form, walking alongside ever transforming horizons. The exhibition addresses the re-contextualization of "here", challenging its containment, and inviting viewers to study diverse definitions of home encompassed in a single shared space. The exhibition will encompass the conceptual and technical growth fostered by the artist's academic career at both the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, as well as the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University.

The Absurd Man: An Honors Art Exhibition

Description

"Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?" \u2014 Albert Camus Making a decision between committing suicide or continuing about the monotony of a life void of meaning

"Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?" \u2014 Albert Camus Making a decision between committing suicide or continuing about the monotony of a life void of meaning can be surprisingly difficult to make when all human logic entices us to do the former. In fact, doing the latter seems definitively humanely impossible. In my art series "The Absurd Man", I visually analyze a variety of human reactions to absurdism, drawing from absurdist texts as well as personal experiences to force upon the viewer, recognition of the discomforting reality of human frailty.

Abstract/Artist Statement Bachelor of Fine Arts Honors Thesis Exhibition Andrea Sherrill Evans I imagine my paintings as an representations of an alternate world inspired both by personal experiences and imagination. In this created world, I am free to draw on truth and fiction, to pair aspects of reality with circumstances, and to reveal tiny pieces of a narrative revolving around human relationships and the relationships one has with objects and with one's environment. The figures depicted began as self-portraits, and the subjects represented are all my own; but the figures have become distinct individuals, unique from both each other and myself, and they exist in a made-up world. These two women, the blonde and the brunette, wander through the patterned rooms of this world. My paintings are documentations of the interactions and mysterious relationship that exists between these women, the shoes, and the patterned walls. The majority of objects are painted with a flat, opaque application of acrylic paint, but as each step in the development of my paintings is uniquely important sometimes the original sketch marks are visible, and I also use oil glazes to create distinct luminosity.

Cradle to Grave: Portraits of the People Behind Starbucks Sumatra Blend Coffee

Description

In this global economy, supply chains are the roads that connect us with goods, people, and information. Many, diverse people have a hand in paving those roads, but they go

In this global economy, supply chains are the roads that connect us with goods, people, and information. Many, diverse people have a hand in paving those roads, but they go largely unnoticed. I wanted to give them a face; I have painted the portraits of each person involved in producing a cup of Starbucks's Sumatra blend from Indonesian Farmer to Barista. Hopefully the next time you take a sip of coffee, you see more than a cup of caffeine.
