MFA candidate work spans a number of different media and genres, such as painting, sculpture, photography, design, video, illustration, and animation. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
My cat greets me at the door. She digs her claws into the coarse, shallow carpet that covers the apartment floor. I take off my shoes, turn on the lights, and settle into this space of my own making. Within safe and familiar walls, I move, think, and speak freely. Memories blend together, routines and rituals repeat themselves, and dreams of past and future moments invoke excitement as well as paralyzing anxiety.
Where I Live presents layered imagery of spaces and objects inside the 550-square-foot apartment that I share with my partner and our cat. Abstracting these mundane aspects of my everyday life using paint and mixed media, I contend with our apartment as a holding space for my body and my mind.
