Congrats on your senior show @nka_glass !

From Natalia’s artist statement: “Nostalgia for the Homeland” incorporates stained glass and Lebanese culture. My nostalgia for Lebanon inspires me to explore the concept of longing for home through traditional and non-traditional stained glass techniques. This feeling of nostalgia or homesickness can be understood by anyone who has been away from their home for a long period of time. The inspiration for my work is from my own personal experience when I first visited my country of origin — Lebanon. The moment I stepped onto the land I felt that I had always belonged there, as I recognized this unfamiliar place like home. Home is a feeling of comfort and contentment with your surroundings. Growing up, you think of your home as a place that you call your own. I did not expect to receive this exact feeling when staying in Lebanon.

Congratulations Tim Eutsay on your graduation from CCS!

From Tim’s artist statement “What does it mean to concretely capture beauty in Nature? Beauty is such an abstract notion that it is difficult to address as a tangible thing. Yet, that in it of itself is my goal - to capture what makes Nature an elegant, monumental, and yet, fragile, force. Through glass I explore the landscape, emphasizing a magical representation of the environment, representing the divine and fragile qualities of nature. There exists an integral passion in the process - an admiration for craft and critical thinking - behind the results of these works. Uniquely my own, I find great enjoyment in carefully planning and executing the approach.”

@yazdabart using light, shadow and experimental video to document her observations and surroundings. “Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, I’ve been forced to rethink my studio practice because, like many artists, my studio resources are inaccessible. Though this was a sudden shift, I now see it as an opportunity rather than a crisis. I’ve taken this time of isolation to observe the world around me more closely, paying particular attention to shifts in perspective brought about by light and shadow. I’ve been exploring ways to document my observations through experimental video and have been astounded by the possibilities of this new way of creating and sharing work. I’m currently investigating ways to utilize these videos to create large-scale installations and interactive sculptures.”
