Brittan Baldwin, class of 2013 is currently working towards her MFA at Pratt. She worked with Adelphi Art Galleries during the senior year of her undergraduate study. While at Adelphi, Brittany excelled in abstract painting and drawing. She says, "My work has taken a giant leap" since she began the MFA program this fall. She has experimented with new materials such as plastic, which was challenging but rewarding! Check out Brittany's website at www.baldwinbrittany.com
Congratulations Brittany! You make us proud!
Few artists get to dabble in as many different mediums as Carson Fox. Through her years of experience, she's had a great many successes in drawing, print making, sculpting, installation, and other, more creative twists on such. Here at Adelphi, she's known for teaching classes like print making, book making, Art Today & Its Issues, and as a prime organizer of Chalk Up and our very successful Ephemeral Exhibitions.
In her own works, Fox seems primarily motivated in exploring materials, and what they mean when incorporated into a work. From her Artist Statement:
"I make art out of materials for which I feel a heartfelt attraction, privileging goods and techniques that seem to best answer the needs of the work above all.
My natural inclination is to be interested in objects and themes that have been left out of the history of art, feeling a particular kinship with marginalized 'craft' materials."
Fox largely uses cast resin in her sculptures; a relatively cheap material which is very non-traditional in light of the standard cast bronze, clay, marble, etc. Fox takes this common, dull material and finds ways to use shape, color, and transparency to create beautiful structures that make convincing crystals, flowers, icicles, etc.
Fox is also well known for her prints, inspired by Victorian Folk Art, and often address the human concerns of aging, life, death, and fleeting time. Carson Fox has a selection of prints in the University Center gallery (exhibit up until January 7, 2015), and even in the entranceway of Swirbul Library.
