Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Sarah Dababneh (visual art; minor in economics) Amman, Jordan

In my series, Colors of Home, I chose to pay tribute to the leaves of autumn.Contrary to my initial expectations, as to the mundane and sometimes burdensome subject, the leaves were riddled with individuality and complexity. Indeed, each of the hundreds of leaves that I experimented with was a testament to the fragility and intricacy of their respective ecosystems. In creating my textiles, by stitching, pulling a fine thread through brittle leaves, the obscure boundary between fragility and strength became clear. Each individual leaf shifted the boundary. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity @ Wheaton College Massachusetts

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Molly-Marie Yans (visual art and business & management) Concord, Massachusetts.

My work can be categorized in the realm of realism using primarily graphite and charcoal on paper. My family, their values, and various traditions are an inspiration for my drawings coming together as a photo album. Each image of an object serves as the centerpiece for a specific moment in time that I am trying to capture. These objects are reminders that no matter how chaotic things are, my family is always there as something I can count on. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity @ Wheaton College Massachusetts

Coby Goodrich (visual art and philosophy) Westport, Massachusetts.

These works focus on my interest and interaction with marine life, and how those interactions may help the health of the ecosystem as well as my own understanding of the natural world. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity @ Wheaton College Massachusetts

“Yet again, we witness another instance of violence inflicted on an African American man in our country. Yet again, we see instances of racism and intolerance in the national news on an almost daily basis. I know that George Floyd’s murder and the many other recent racist acts in the news and that some experience daily have a profound impact on many members of our community. It should matter to all of us. Our own community is not perfect, but we are committed to creating a community that is inclusive and works toward justice for all. We are in the process of creating a campus plan of action and support in response to these tragic recent events. We must be better, and I urge every member of the Wheaton community to join me in committing to action to address racism in all its forms.” Dennis Hanno, Wheaton College President

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Brianna D. Medas (visual art; double minor in business & management and education) Norton, Massachusetts

This current body of work reflects people in my life and how I feel about my relationships with them over time. I used magazine cutouts and found materials, such as wire and string, to create a new, unrealistic, and abstract environment. The elements of design helped me to express feelings and emotions that these individuals bring to me. Because I had to fully rake through and process my emotions, several collages represent the same person due to the many layers of the relationship. These pieces are meant to work as a whole, creating a sense of connectedness between me and my feelings for the people I love. Image 1: “Hollywood” (multimedia); Image 2: “Outdoorsman” (multimedia); Image 3: “Bay Road” (multimedia); Image 4: “The Magicians” (multimedia); Image 5: “Long Lost Time” (multimedia).

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Augustus Williams (visual art), Bristol, Maine

Augustus Williams is a sculptor that manipulates and personifies classroom objects such as desks, pencils, and chairs, but most commonly books. He uses these objects and his sense of humor to create pop-up installations. These installations act as scenes depicting the american college student experience, before and during the pandemic. They are a collection of his own experiences as a student for the past 19 years, bouncing in between 14 different schools and are a critique on the american educational system, they are “The Yearbook Club”. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity @ Wheaton College Massachusetts

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Sasha Kasem-Beg (visual art and sociology),Waterford, Connecticut.

Sasha Kasem-Beg is a sculptor and photographer that mainly creates art from found objects. Whether this is literally rummaging through the trash or yard sales for abandoned objects, or stifling through literature as inspiration, Sasha’s work creates a psychic moment in time.

For her senior capstone, Sasha’s installation entitled “Curated” is like a gallery or a museum of a past self. Creating a replica of her childhood bedroom, Sasha aims to dissect her definition of home. Her photography plays with this motif through the symbolism of snails, who possess the ability to create a home within themselves.

Kasem-Beg is receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree from Wheaton College, MA with a double major in Visual Art and Sociology. In addition to her degree, during her time at Wheaton she also attended Wheaton’s Arts in Ireland Program at the Burren College of Art.

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Jingyu (Jean) Tao (visual art and business & management), Zhengzhou, Henan, China.

Making art is a way for me to self-healing and exploring myself. This illustration is a black and red line drawing art making by watercolor, markers and acrylic paints.
Each of my arts has a figure as a symbol. Instead of being a figure, they are more like emotions or feelings. I believe each individual has differently feeling base on their experience but deeply connected in some way. These arts are not about me, it is about us, is about the way we are feeling the world. as an emotional creature on this planet, we are experiencing anxiety, lost, unsafe and stress. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity @ Wheaton College Massachusetts

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Yizhou Li (visual art), Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.

My work is about presenting myself through photography. The 4 x 5 field camera, the only camera I use for my work, push me to reconsider the process of photography. The slowness, the process of shooting is like meditation. It helped my journey finding myself in the art world. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Alejandra Monge (visual art and anthropology), Rhode Island.

This hasn’t been easy but it’s time for the reveal. Here are some photos of my senior project transformation. From heads and paint to hands and fabric. Enjoy! @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Timmy McCormack (visual art and computer science), Carlisle, Massachusetts.

Timmy is a digital artist and animator. He loves comic books and cartoons. He enjoys working with the Adobe suite to create characters and stories. For his capstone project, Timmy designed a story-board following the tale of a young deer searching for independence. His project converts the story-board into an animation of the deer walk cycle. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity

Look for more of Timmy’s work in the comments.

[05/20/20]   Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Shannon Connolly (visual art and creative writing), Shannon is from the Nutmeg State of America which says enough about her.

This is a clip of Shannon’s process for drawing her teen graphic novel, “Legacy.” Connolly included 6 illustrations from her graphic novel in the 2020 Senior Exhibition, “Many Frequencies, Equal Intensity.” From the sketching, revising, coloring, and shading, each of the illustrations took 4-6 hours to complete. Connolly’s motto with this project has been, “Wait, is that the time?” always becoming absorbed by her work for long periods of the day. Check out the online exhibition, and see where all of Connolly’s time has gone.

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Elisa Renee McClear (visual art and history of art), West Hartford, Connecticut.

This linoleum print, “The Big Picture” (48 x 36 in), is the largest, central piece in the 7 part series, “Nature vs. Nurture". The 6 smaller pieces focus on human effects on the environment, while “The Big Picture” serves to represent the world free from human harm. Each of the 13 animals depicted are either endangered/ threatened, or a keystone species.

Visual Art Senior Spotlight:
Nathan Domingos (visual arts), Woburn, Massachusetts.

Series title: ORIGINS—A harsh line is often drawn between fine art and design. In my experience as both an artist and a designer, I’ve realized that these genres are more similar than people may think. My senior project explores the similarities between art and design by connecting the seemingly at-odds concepts of street art and architecture in a series of photographs, digital collages, and paintings. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity

Maia Shelby Hay (visual art and political science), West Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

In this “Moment of Breath Series,” I found my way to express the intensity of the little moments that have come to make life big. My watercolor paintings and larger installation was a way to recreate the physical world as I see it. These simple elements of my life have come to represent security and transformation. My art is a way to find peace within that space of fleeting moments. @wheatoncollege #classof2020 #seniorspotlight #visualart #artsatwheaton #manyfrequenciesequalintensity @may_fellows @wheatonrec @sgawheaton @wheatonwomensrugby @voicesunitedtojam
