Foundation Painting

Student: Tara Foley

These student artists have been exploring this balance and continually-looping pathway between learning to trust and claim the intelligences of Eros in transcending even language, mere logic, or linear thinking to open up to their supra-rational and intuitive, analogical, synthetic capacities, and then, alternately, learning to step back — physically as well as metaphorically — to Logos’ critique, measurement, and articulating in words and reasoning their creative process. The results are these images of self, whether depicted exclusively through surrogate objects, or in a synthesis of symbolic and fantastical twists on the figure, or in the self of a beloved family member rendered in distractedly doodle-like portraits that belie their commitment to precious commemoration.
