|Abstract:||This piece hangs in the New West Dining hall. It was created for the spring 2017 Senior Thesis exhibition, then acquired by the college. Mckenzie Drake's artist's statement reads, "Using images that are unique to my personal experiences, environment, and vernacular, I create painting that are vibrant and obscure. In combining these idiosyncratic objects and ideas, I free these compositions from their emotional and physical gravity. Multiple layers between background and foreground help to establish spatial ambiguity, which I reinforce through speed, washes, and tension among colors. Through this process, these paintings serve as quick reflections of my life, separated into pieces that give me the authorship to mimic or mock their existence."|
