Nuanced Translations: The Search For Unity Between Text, Image, And Self In Oscar Wilde's Fairy Tales, Jana Purington May 2016

Nuanced Translations: The Search For Unity Between Text, Image, And Self In Oscar Wilde's Fairy Tales, Jana Purington

Senior Theses

Few scholars have invested much time studying Oscar Wilde's fairy tales, focusing primarily on their place within the fairy tale genre, their morality, and queer themes latent in the stories. Fewer still examine them as visual, rather than merely literary, texts. Many of these ways of understanding his tales provide valuable insight, convincing interpretations, worthwhile avenues for thought, but by considering the artistic elements of Wilde's work, we can appreciate the cross-fertilization of his abstract, theoretical Aesthetic principles and the tangible objects he produces. Even among the subset of critics who do emphasize the visual aspects of Wilde ...

Taking In: A Juried Selection Of Undergraduate Photography 2016, Lesley University Apr 2016

Taking In: A Juried Selection Of Undergraduate Photography 2016, Lesley University

Taking In

One of the images selected for this year's Taking In shows us a window, or more specifically, a screen that has seen better days. As viewers we stand in an unnamed space that resists domestic comforts and look through that battered screen to a bright day. We are both inside and out, in the moment and looking past it. In another photograph a young man confronts us as a woman clasps both sides of his head. Her expression reveals little, but her grip is strong. Raking light and ambiguous gesture illuminate, but do not define, the complexities of intimacy ...


The Call Of The Undertow, Rebekah Bradford Jan 2016

The Call Of The Undertow, Rebekah Bradford

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

Artist Statement

Prior to becoming a graphic design student, I was very interested in illustration. I wanted an opportunity to hone my illustration skills, focus on one consistent style of illustration, consistently draw the same characters, and practice writing. Creating a children’s book gave me the opportunity to do all of those things. And, after several semesters of work, it’s great to finally see The Call of the Undertow completed! I hope that you enjoy reading this story and looking at the images because I enjoyed creating it.

Southern Steam Prints: Large Scale, Relief Printmaking, Allison Mueller

University Honors Program Theses

Southern Steam Prints, a steamroller printmaking festival for Georgia Southern University I directed and organized. The project helped create community involvement in printmaking as an art form, gained notoriety for the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art and especially the Print, Paper, and Book Arts Program. The project taught valuable skill mastery in relief print techniques, commercialism, and leadership for the kinds of event that artists plan, jury, and participate in, in the professional world. The Southern Steam Prints festival took place on April 23, 2016. Artworks created at the event were exhibited at the Center of Art and Theater ...
