Mixed Media Artworks
I will create a collection of 6 – 12 mixed media artworks that will contain painted/drawn two-dimensional imagery with sculpted/cast three-dimensional objects. These works will be designed and displayed in three-dimensional containers, boxes or bell jars. These microcosms will have spatial complexity and invoke reverie. The goal is to research and explore new media and techniques, expanding my creative abilities. I am influenced by Joseph Cornell, a Twentieth-century American artist who capitalized on Surrealist and Dadaist ideas. It is my desire to complete these works, have them professionally photographed, and then exhibited in galleries, including Bridgewater State College’s Wallace Anderson Gallery (or another on-campus venue), non-profit art centers, and other educational institutions and museums.
