Shaped by Play

My thesis body of work includes monotype prints and wooden block pieces dispersed and assembled along a white gallery wall. Familiar forms repeat, magnify, stack, fall, and climb; oscillating between solid forms and flat prints. Shapes become personified characters, the aerial view of a landscape, the close-up of a pebble, the top of a mound; they are symbols to sketch deeper meaning, and elements to turn and hold to light.

The prints and assemblages are not exact depictions of one another, rather, imaged narratives coalesce into similar conversations of play and place. The work circles around David Aaron's definition of play, "To look at something every which way." 

Due to Covid-19, the annual exit show, originally to be displayed at the Georgia Museum of Art, has been moved entirely online this year.
