"These pieces attempt to depict the slight unraveling of the mind that comes with deep thought. This is shown in one piece in the transition between the line drawing and the shaded portion, and in the jumbled lines that make up the figure in the other piece."
Simar Bhatia (2022)
"A small part of my art portfolio. Some through quarantine and some from before. I’ve always found a way to express my appreciation of beauty within sadness, darkness, and the eerie through my art. I don’t limit myself to any mediums, but each work opens to a window to know about me a little more as a human, an artist, and a soul."
Allison Wilson (2022)
My vision for this piece was to juxtapose a dance element with nature. I blended the dancer's body into the stem and leaves to symbolize the growing process that dancers and plants share. Additionally, both require a strong foundation in order to sprout into something beautiful, so the roots underground represent the support that is often unseen.

Stitches (left) and Lovebloom (right) both seek to explore the relationship between artificial symbols of humanity and the natural features that define our world. Specifically, I am interested in using natural elements to portray and contextualize the intricate aspects of everyday life. These images are published in Intrigue, a book of poems written by my good friend Maika Isogawa.
"A Mountain Range of Memories"
Lucy Reinhard (2023)
"Titled 'A Mountain Range of Memories,' this piece is a collage of fond and nurturing moments, some of which are secondhand, as I've painted, in green, a photo of my grandparents in their youth. I worked from photos of my travels and moments with friends and family to create a mountain range of the colorful moments that have created who I am. This conglomeration of memories from my life, the life that came before me, and even the birth of my sister (as I've painted my mother breastfeeding her in orange) is a map of my perceived selfhood and an ode to the deep gratitude I feel for all the loving people that have entered and created my life. Oil Paint on canvas, 30''x20'', 2020.
