This tetraptych is an editorial piece to accompany an article about the neurological phenomenon synesthesia – a blending of senses. Synesthetes hear colors, feel sounds and taste shapes. I showed this through geometric shapes,bright colors, layers, and texture. All effects are created in-camera through lighting and props.
This piece is a study of a face, beginning with an over-simplified form and developing in complexity and detail. Cast in plaster, I’ve used repetition while exploring
various angles of the form.
This work was inspired by our cultures love/hate relationship with the female form. Breasts as titillation and objects of desire have been normalized, while the act of feeding a child is a taboo to be covered up and hidden away.
This piece is a portrayal of our journeys through life using a unique perspective. Often we find the first steps in life to appear large and overwhelming, but growing with knowledge and understanding these “stairs” become shorter and clearer.
Reminding us to take every day one step at a time.
A Dash Back in Time
This artwork is one of my favorite as well as a meaningful piece among all other works I did at MCC. The assignment was from the Commercial Illustration class, and the object was to turn a Moleskine accordian type sketchbook into a continuous art piece with one theme. At first, it was a challenge, for I couldn’t think of any idea that could be abundant enough to fill out those blank pages. By chance, I found an old picture album of my family and I. Many memories rushed to my mind, and it became my inspiration. While developing this book, countless memories appeared in my head; every feel, scent and atmosphere all together came back to me. Finishing this made me realize that being able to draw is not just a hobby or talent but it’s a gift that allows one to draw out on paper the people and moments from the past, which is much precious than any modern camera.
