His Only Constant

Jung Ye Ji

Acrylic paint, 11"x14", 2021 This piece is about the boy I loved. It was a toxic relationship where I succumbed to his every need and standard so that he would love me. His emotions were like a roller coaster and I had to simply adjust. He would gaslight, he would say one thing and mean the other. However, the only constant thing about him was the black vans he would wear every single day. The painting on top was originally how I wanted to execute this piece. However, it looked too perfect. It didn't speak about all the turmoil and heartbreak that I went through. This is why in the bottom painting I added my white anger and hurt to resemble the chaos that surrounded the only constant thing about him.

The Lung

Virginia Liu

Branches, cotton, bead, air bag, acrylic painting, 22cm x 22cm x 8cm, 2021 During the pandemic, I want to make a lung’s sculpture since it was mainly targeted by the virus. I would use different styles to reveal the strong comparison between a healthy and broken lung to warn and advocate people to not only protect themselves under this pandemic but also protect people around us by applying safety measures.

My Race Is Not A Virus

Jung Ye Ji

Oil Paint, 16"x20", 2021 The offense of one's skin color has become so triggering that the world has resorted to racially motivated crimes against Asian Americans. Sly comments such as “wuhan virus”, “kung-flu”, “china virus”, have led to violent slashing, stabbings, beatings, and even murders. This piece is a very personal piece to me because it is a portrait of my father eating noodles at one of our favorite restaurants. However, the rise of anti-asian hate crimes have not only infringed on our undeniable rights as humans but also brought upon a paralysis of fear. I worry every time my mother walks our dog, afraid that someone will take offense of her “asian” attire. I worry about my father, afraid that his accent will cause discomfort when he’s ordering noodles. With strong emotions, I painted this piece to bring awareness to the fact that the virus in America is not my asian origins, it is racism itself.

Likes Likes Likes

Elly Kang

Cardboards/Acrylic/Toothpicks, 2020 Worked with body-as-site and created an artwork that is a physical extension of my body. The topic I wanted to address was the problem of ‘Likes’ on social media. Many people, especially teenagers, often feel depressed when a photo they posted only gets a few ‘Likes’. In other words, people consider social media ‘Likes’ as a measurement of popularity, which is a serious social concern.

Ferris Wheel

Ria Kang

Digital, 2021 This piece is also a glitched image. Similar to the previous one, ordinary place and structure have been modified extraordinarily. The entire composition expresses the transition between different domains. What kinds of these domains could be is open for interpretation - perhaps into a fairy tale, wonderland, or the universe.

Plane Window

Ria Kang

Digital, 2021 This artwork was created using glitching, which led to the incorporation of uncontrolled and almost accidental components in the composition. Utilizing such a characteristic of the process, I re-contextualized a picture of a plane window and produced an abstract space that conveys a feeling of being in a different dimension.

Squeezing Lemon

Ria Kang

Micron pen, 24 x 18, 2021 This work is intended to show the change in time during the 24 hours of drawing. I captured moments of one action: squeezing a lemon. The whole picture plane is filled with hands with lemon, in varying sizes and different line qualities. The hatching in the background intensifies the act of squeezing and gives hands movement.

Who Are They?

Jung Ye Ji

Graphite and Oil Pastels, 18"x24", 2021 This piece was based on a photo that was taken during my Peru Medical Mission Trip. During the trip, we visited three poverty-stricken cities: Santa Clara, Lonca Dora, Sanbora. What fascinated me about this picture was how it captured the expression of this little girl. In the photo, she not only looks very mature for her age but also her gaze contained a certain sorrow within it. This made me pursue this drawing because I wanted to show the truth of tourism. At the time, all we could see as tourists, was the colorfulness of her bright cultural clothes and the music that surrounded her. Multiple people clapped for her, took pictures of her, and smiled at her. Without knowing, we objectified and dehumanized her into a human postcard. This is why the disruption caused by the oil pastels is so important, because just like the effects of tourism it covered her face, concealing her true feelings and emotions.

Embody

Celine Lassus

4x5 film photograph, 2020 My mother and I hold each other as we are both dressed in her work uniform, myself in a blonde wig to complete the resemblance. Taken beachside, the person behind us claims the focus of the photo – placing us both in a dreamy, non-space. This performance was an attempt to 'download' her existence so I can always carry a piece of home. Moving away for college is a venture that often assumes distance from home is required for personal growth. I challenge this notion as it feeds harmful, elitist mindsets that disregard the need for belonging.

Packing My Lunch

Erica Henri

Video, 33 seconds, 2021 Before the pandemic, my lunch break in the art building usually consisted of peanut M&Ms from the vending machine – sometimes packing my lunch for the longer days away from home. This simple luxury no longer seems tangible. Therefore I pack my digital Go-gurt, digital sandwich, digital Fritos, and digital cookie into my digital Hannah Montana lunchbox, ready to conquer my digital day.
