I am graduating this week with my MFA from the New York Academy of Art's graduate program in figurative painting and printmaking. Here are some images from the MFA show opening Uncharted, now on view through May 27, including work by 60 fantastic emerging artists. Below, I also included a few images from my final critique with NYAA faculty.
Above is the largest painting in my thesis work, titled Release. It is hung above 3 paintings by Joe Ventura.
The lithograph titled Mobility on the upper left is the second piece of mine included in the show. It is a litho of my grandfather's shoes, a powerful image which came up multiple times in my thesis work. Also seen in this photo are paintings by Imogen Slater (lower left) and Mary Harju (right).
Faculty discussing my thesis work. I included 3 lithographs and 3 paintings, all focusing on images related to my grandfather and exploring ideas about family relationships, aging, and mortality.
