1. Pospichal, Todd. Circumventing Control.

Degree: M.F.A., Visual Art, 2011, University of Kansas

My creative process emerges from the struggle between two contrasting impulses: a habitual desire to control my internal and external environments, and an instinctive need to overcome these constraints. The discoveries I have made in the studio have fostered my desire to confront anxiety and make critical decisions in the face of uncertain outcomes. For me, the process of making has become a mode of thinking. It has become a way of remembering the past, envisioning the future, and experiencing the present moment. I find that working with collage in combined analog and digital formats, allows me to experiment with images and materials in an immediate way. As a result, my studio practice has provided a way for me to circumvent the controlling mind, and to re-examine some of the old, outdated paradigms I have about life and art. Advisors/Committee Members: Katz, Cima (advisor), Carter, Carol Ann (cmtemember), Brackett, David (cmtemember).

2. Stella Salisbury, Carol Anne. Textus.

Degree: M.F.A., Visual Art, 2012, University of Kansas

Abstract Textus, my Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition, is a body of work in diverse media. Within it, Spiral, a sculptural piece, reflects my background in metalsmithing and jewelry design. There are also seven digital prints/drawings and a digital animation, which depart from my metal work. In Textus I employ words in text as metaphor for our inability to grasp the complexities of existence. We use text as a response to our existential predicament; it is as limited as our biology. I believe we are biologically driven to search for knowledge, yet our biology sets the limits of exploration. Advisors/Committee Members: Westergard, Gina (advisor), Havener, Jon (cmtemember), Stanionis, Lin (cmtemember), Carter, Carol Ann (cmtemember).

3. Timmer, Betsy Jo. Embodiment.

Degree: M.F.A., Art, 2008, University of Kansas

"Embodiment" is a MFA Thesis Exhibition made up of several mixed media objects fashioned from fabric, wool felt, and domestic tools. By combining carefully chosen materials to reference the human form and employing humor and gesture, the objects become characters with which the audience and I can identify. Using historically feminine materials and techniques to discuss the roles of women in culture connects me to a rich tradition of feminist artists working to voice female concerns. Each piece I create is provoked by the stress, busyness and endless demands of the non-stop, bigger, better, faster culture of excess in which I find myself daily – specifically the demands facing women. In endless pursuit of unrealistic goals, women run themselves ragged, hate their bodies, abuse themselves, and feel like failures. I create characters that serve as catalysts, ideally sparking a thorough examination and evaluation of our culture, its demands, and ourselves. Advisors/Committee Members: Katz, Cima (advisor), Carter, Carol Ann (cmtemember), Luoma, Alison (cmtemember).
