This is my Final Final piece of EFS at RISD..! Wow. That’s a lot to think about! I’ll be doing a little swipe through of my favorite works from my first year at RISD soon.. it’s been so powerful being here and I can’t wait to start learning in the painting department this fall!

“Restless” chronicles an unmade bed throughout the week of an artist. The bed was made every night and the following morning it was painted with gouache on 8.5x8.5” Bristol. 
•
Secondly, I included a clip from our group drawing performance “Despite it All”. The part which didn’t fit involved all four of us getting onto the pedestal, separated by vertical hanging paper. We then attempted to trace the Mark of our neighbors with our paint covered hands, eventually causing the paper to break down. When our hands aligned and the paper happened to tear, we grabbed onto each other’s forearms. When we were all connected the performance was over. 
•
I hope you enjoy these !!

from clay forms to writhing worms
•
this drawing/painting (charcoal, pastel, acrylic) involved a disruption by a peer (Sean!) where we traded pieces for a half hr- the 4th slide is where he left my piece, and the 6th is where I left his! We really informed eachother’s work in the end which was such a neat experience.. we made art test tube babies, basically. These knotty, intertwining root/worm structures were so interesting to invent and play with! Definitely wanna explore this kinda thing more :)
