Shhh... Say Nothing, Luis Rendon 2010 Claremont Graduate University

Shhh... Say Nothing, Luis Rendon

CGU MFA Theses

My art is the foundation I use to commune with myself and bridge the gap to the rest of the world. A gap created by everyday being surrounded by information, so much so that it is easy to become numb. I do not want, because of my inability to filter the relentless onslaught of information, to walk through life tuned off. All that undigested knowledge leaves me feeling distant from myself and unable to connect with others. This leaves me with the sensation of not knowing myself.

Deep End, Emily Smith

CGU MFA Theses

In my work I examine how and where nature and culture collide, merge, overlap or become one. Ultimately my goal is to draw attention to the ways we perceive and remember nature as well as ho w we experience the natural landscape in opposition to built environments. I am also interested in how our relation to these spaces changes over time and how we might envision these environments in the not-s o-distant future.

Filosofia Antropológica?, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Filosofia Antropológica?, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Muito do que se passa nas nossas sociedades, actualmente, depende de termos ou não termos um olhar filosófico, e de termos ou não termos a capacidade perspectivista do antropólogo. O presente artigo chama a atenção para a necessidade de a Filosofia, tentando furtar-se à tirania do Logos na versão dos ares "grão senhores", de que falava Kant, procure o olhar de "terceiro", e o despojamento de recursos da Antropologia cultural.

Élan Vital, Sharon Mealey 2010 Claremont Graduate University

Élan Vital, Sharon Mealey

CGU MFA Theses

My art explores the inner qualities of life, focusing on adaptability and resiliency. I am interested in the mysterious vital force philosophers call élan vital that animates human beings.

The City With Rolling Hills, Andrew Ballstaedt 2010 Claremont Graduate University

The City With Rolling Hills, Andrew Ballstaedt

CGU MFA Theses

I use painting as a form of ritual and meditation where I often spend lots of time painting and repeating simple marks over and over again. On occasion, I am able to make quick paintings that are successful but most of the time I am compelled to spend repetitive hours making marks in order to reach my state of personal mediation through the ritual of painting.

Minority Report, Tania Jazz Alvarez 2010 Claremont Graduate University

Minority Report, Tania Jazz Alvarez

CGU MFA Theses

I make large, colorful, messy figurative paintings that tell stories and celebrate the underdog. I use found objects, as well as wood panels and canvases. The poetry of the street plays an important role in my art; from what I paint on, to what I paint with, to my subject matter, my art conveys both liberation and pride toward my Hispanic culture. When I create, I allow the paint to be true to its physical properties. I am aggressive and free in my painting and mark-making. If my paintings begin to appear “sophisticated,” I find ways to manipulate them. I ...

Painting Process As Journey : Movement And Stasis : Meditation And Materiality, Christelle Naudé 2010 Southern Cross University

Painting Process As Journey : Movement And Stasis : Meditation And Materiality, Christelle Naudé

Theses

This exegesis documents and supports a studio-based research project that produced a body of work, resulting in an exhibition entitled ‘Meditation and Materiality’. This project aimed to integrate an exploration of the physicality and materiality of painting with the universal interconnectedness experienced in deep meditation practices.

Central to this research was the concept of journey, specifically the parallels between the metaphor of the poetic image on canvas and my inner journey: my worldly travels and the performance of paint as material. Further parallels emerged such as the ritual of preparation in the studio mirrored that for meditation space, and immateriality ...
