Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)
The mind-body is not separate just as artist and Art are not separate entities either. Because the human subject is tied to the Art object, rather than striving for perfection, a more fruitful approach to artmaking is one that utilizes imperfection to its advantage. By subverting what is thought of as error, the glitch acts as a transgressive image. It functions as a symbol of embracing imperfection by leveraging mishap as a catalyst for experimentation and re/invention. Profile on platform serves as a curatorial space, one of agency, access, and opportunity, to display images of our selfiest selves. In this way, it is possible to hyper-curate a profile to the point of epitomizing the self as an empathy generator. From digital platform to analog substrate, this body of work demonstrates how a Painting, Drawing, Writing, Printing, and Photography practice can collapse into various “Sport Combos” in an effort to combat conformity, support subjectivity, and work towards transgressive image(s), as a means of creating… a better world.
