Javier Fox: Kindred 2019

Faculty Artist Statement I grew up in Colombia, South America surrounded by an abundance of nature. The diverse habitat of my childhood provided the foundation for my appreciation of the offerings of the earth. I bring nature into my work through lines, texture, shape and color.

Derrick Burbul: Kindred 2019

Faculty Artist Statement What does this Nebraska landscape mean? What does it have to share with us? To aid my understanding of this place I have been read journals and accounts of travel along the trails that crossed this territory from explorers and pioneers, learning about the culture and characteristics of this land. What has Read More

Mark Hartman: Kindred 2019

Faculty Artist Statement My creative process is one of striving and searching. In part, it’s a challenge like climbing a mountain but not, necessarily, to reach the summit. I’m not even certain of what an artistic “summit” would look like. Perhaps it’s to complete something that is complete; to create a work that’s alluring without Read More

Richard Schuessler: Kindred 2019

Faculty Artist Statement The numbers and letters series is ongoing visual and typographic exploration of different mix media: traditional and electronic printing. The message of numbers and letters are more than tabulating figures or creating the written word. My numbers and letters studies are visual punctuation of different events or spoken words of the ongoing Read More
