A tumultuous election year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide protests in honor of justice, the year 2020 was unlike any other in recent memory. And while 2021 brings hope of a new chapter, much of the weariness, isolation and feelings of entrapment that began last year continue into the present. Such emotional, social/political and physical sensibilities--loneliness, solitude, escape into the natural or animal world, and a pervasive feeling of reflection--are resolutely present in many of the 2D works included this exhibition.
Comprised of painting, drawing, printmedia, photography and intermedia, the category of two-dimensional work features both contemporary and traditional image-making techniques. Click on the individual works to learn more about each and connect with students on Instagram or their website.
