I recently had to the exit review for my painting degree. It seems a lot more important than it actually is, although that doesn’t make it any less terrifying. It doesn’t decide if you graduate or not, but the six heads of the painting department come in to look at your work and ask you to talk about it. Keep in mind that these people are either successful artists or have been successful artists. I did my best to fumble through talking about my work and I think I made it out just fine.
The work above is called Arrangement #7 and is oil on 1×1 panels and can be rearranged in multiple ways. And of course that’s me next to it. I’ll be in the senior show May 9th to the 12th at the Cora Stafford Gallery in Oak Street Hall in Denton, Texas. Feel free to come see my piece as well as my colleague’s pieces.
