2009-2011 | Graduate Work

Collection of work done at WSU, Pullman, where I received an MFA in Drawing & Printmaking


Prints

A small series of prints made during the last semester of grad school. These roadkill prints of birds (and one of rats) were done from life of animals found around the WSU campus in different states of decomposition. Along with this series are a few other prints done during my second year of grad school


Noah’s Tacos & Street

Work 1 of 4. Mixed-Media Installation done for MFA show at WSU in Pullman, WA.


Mano y Mano

Work 2 of 4. Performance & Installation for MFA show at WSU in Pullman, WA. The performance consisted of daily two-handed drawings done in the museum during museum hours, allowing the public to stand close by and observe.


Piggies

Work 3 of 4. Ceramics Installation for MFA show at WSU in Pullman, WA. Focusing on Multiplicity and Theme & Variation, the installation consisted of piggies made from a mold that were later modified and painted by myself or fellow artists.


Mas Caras

Work 4 of 4. Painting Installation for MFA show at WSU in Pullman, WA. Following the Multiplicity and Theme & Variation idea, this work consisted of painting different masks on male & female face templates focusing on the fact that people continuously wear mask(s) when presenting themselves to other individuals and never quite revealing their true self.


Intersection

Installation done at the end of the first year of graduate school. It was a collection of interests in roadkill around the town of Pullman, WA, along with ice cream carts and the urban environment from Los Angeles, CA. These works culminated in an installation emulating Natural History museum dioramas.
