1. Borja, Wilson Andres. Chere.

Degree: MFA, Art (MFA), 2014, University of Arkansas

Chere is research project and a thesis exhibition installation composed of a series of drawing/paintings and short animations that explores the phenomenon of migration and the African diaspora. This exploration was originated by contrasting aspects of forced and voluntary migration in addition to Kvasnyand and Hales' idea, that "Belonging everywhere or not belonging anywhere" describes the situation among people of the African diaspora. Through research I intersperse layers of personal history with that of my ancestors and their descendants in the Americas. As a biracial person, a self-identified Afro-descendant from Colombia, South America, I am interested in the process of hybridization as a consequence of migration. I draw inspiration from African textiles and their African American hybrid forms, quilts. This project analyses Ptolemaic concepts in regards of pre-Columbian and African map conventions, and African syllabaries in order to visualize aspects of the African diaspora such as colonization, evangelization, displacement, instability, inequality, marginalization, adaptation, and acculturation. With the development of this project I intend to reach a more accurate understanding of the multi-layered experience of the African Diaspora, particularly with regard to the persistent color line traced five hundred years ago by the Western colonial system. This exploration traces back to the origins of cultural traits of the Afro-descendant traveling culture. It focuses on elements that survived and disseminated in the New World such as quilts and percussive music, and place them in a contemporary context. This project also incorporates materials infused with historical meaning to my practice as a visual artist. Advisors/Committee Members: Kristin Musnug, Stephanie Pierce, Sam King.

2. McDaniel, Jonathan Wade. Synthetic Constructive.

Degree: MFA, Art (MFA), 2014, University of Arkansas

Synthetic Constructive is an exhibition of paintings and collages, both reflect the building and managing of synthetically constructed places and expose the human condition of struggle in both the physical world and the emotional world. I view these works as synthetically created arenas that inform my understanding and experience of natural forces that cannot be rationalized or neatly ordered. Though inspired by and constructed from the imagery of the after effects of devastation they become more than that as they explore these relationships. It is important that these works, both as collages and as paintings, reflect the search and process of their creation. Advisors/Committee Members: Kristin Musgnug, Leo Mazow, Stephanie Pierce.
