As a Salisbury student, I was taught by some of the best mentors and artists on how to create my own style of work and grow not only as an as an artist but as a person. The work shown have been completed as an undergraduate. These works have been made with Photoshop, Aftereffects, Lightroom, Finalcut Pro, and Cinema 4D.
This first video deals with the social issue of society judging each other harshly. If you are gay, transexual, overweight, a person of color, a different religion or anything that out of the norm, you could be verbally or physically attacked and judged. When we strip our skin and ego we are all the same. Our bodies with erode with the earth, our souls soar into the sky, and all that's left are the white bones that held us together. Dropping ones ego, mask, and coming back to divine nature.
At Salisbury, In order to receive a B.F.A. degree, students must host an annual art exhibition held in the school gallery. During the semester, students put all their work together and prepare it for the big gallery opening show. Below are my pieces that I submitted. Being a New Media student, I wanted to create multiple media pieces that would compliment each other. After months of hard work, I was awarded for my pieces the highest honor for the show, the Presidential Award.
Show walk through
For my first piece, I wanted to merge together and old form of art, and new. I hand threw ceramic pots and created animations to video map onto them.
Being a music fanatic, I not only wanted to direct and shoot my own video, but also produce my very own music track. After dealing with personal struggles during the time, "She Needs Me" became a very personal and special piece to me.
