Unconventional Portraits
Wagner College Senior Art Show
April 12, 2018 through May 12, 2018 in the Art Gallery – Union Hall

The senior studio art majors have a show up at the Union Art Gallery through May 11 of their independent studio work. Brianna Hoffman focused her work on the figure, and in particular, the figure in motion and she explored this motif in drawings, sculpture and painting. Natalia Radzik chose to find angles and corners and ordinary moments often overlooked inside and outside of buildings. Quiet reflective scenes painted with rich limited palettes abstract her images. Andrew Russo spent the semester painting portraits of animals, both domestic and wild, choosing a monochromatic palette that dramatizes and sharpens his images. Anna Ward worked both in self-portraiture that was from observation as well as working from her imagination in her sketchbooks. Her imaginative drawings were often drawn from her own experiences. She also experimented with creating collaborative drawings with friends. One of these images is the postcard for the art show
