University of Colorado

1. Graham, Frank. The War Against Nothing.

Degree: MFA, Art & Art History, 2019, University of Colorado

My quilts are story-making machines. I am retelling mythological stories made new with dystopian science fiction premises. My quilts, like the stories they tell, can be unbuttoned to reveal more information like a pop up book. I invite viewers to approach the quilts like an interactive puzzle from which they may piece together their own interpretations of the symbols and the stories. Whatever changes the future may hold for us, we will still need the comfort of our stories. Culture itself is made up of stories that resemble a quilt; a quilt that may soften the hardness of reality. Advisors/Committee Members: Marina Kassianidou, Alvin Gregario, Mike Womack.

University of Colorado

2. Smith, Matthew. Splitting Water with Wood.

Degree: MFA, Art & Art History, 2017, University of Colorado

My thesis project Splitting Water with Wood is an installation consisting of a handmade boat and projected video of a durational performance that engaged the boat in unconventional ways. Throughout the project and paper, I employ conceptions of faith as a crucial lens to begin to understand my current body of work; a handcrafted boat as an exploratory apparatus, the labor surrounding it as an act of devotion, and a resulting performance that experiments with ideas about baptism. By challenging presupposed notions of how a boat traditionally functions, I rely on the lively materiality of the object and its environment to capture and extract previously unforeseen possibilities. It considers the do-it-yourself lineage in my family and how that history of fabricating, constructing, and repairing informs me as an artist. Splitting Water with Wood draws on personal stories of my past and reimagines them as new narratives to explore the many facets of my Midwestern roots and provides insight to myself as a maker. Advisors/Committee Members: Jeanne Quinn, Yumi Roth, Alvin Gregario, Erin Espelie.
