2020 LeRoy Neiman Foundation Fellowship at Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency

Call for Student Artists: Ox-Bow’s Summer Fellowship is a fully funded opportunity for student artists to focus on their work, meet with renowned artists, and grow as members of this unique community. These students live on our campus for 13 weeks where they participate in campus life as both staff members and artists. By working closely with the staff, fellows develop relationships with others who have also made artmaking their lives. Fellowship students are either selected by Ox-Bow’s jury or the departments at one of eight partnering schools based on the merit of their work and on their commitment to making inspired and innovative art. During their stay at Ox-Bow, fellowship students are able to reinforce their commitments to artmaking, benefit from intense focus and access to professional artists. The fellowship program is a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate within an engaging artist-run community.

Fellowship recipients receive:

A studio space with 24 hour access
Weekly stipend for working 20 hours on campus in housekeeping, the kitchen, grounds and maintenance or the office
Free housing and meals
Weekly studio visits with visiting artists
Opportunity to exhibit their work
Opportunity to audit a two week course of their choosing

Ox-Bow offers 3 fellowships to undergraduate and graduate students from any degree-seeking institution

Applicants must:
Be undergraduate students in the junior/senior year or MFA students
Have graduated December 2019 or later
Be at least 21 years old at the start of the fellowship

I enjoy the manipulation of materials and how process itself contributes to the life and form of the image. Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain laden clouds. Areas of sky, water, and land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common conditions of weather and time. In my acid etched tin pieces, areas of watery marks are left visible to suggest the underlying layers of the landscape. I  do not strive to recreate the particulars of  places that inspire me, but rather the timelessness of the elements of light, weather, and geometries that inform them. My work is not about how the landscape looks as much as about how the landscape makes me feel. I try to create an image that allows the viewer to engage with it in such a way as to invite similar introspection.

Influenced by folklore, superstition, divination, & forgotten territories reclaimed by nature, I create immersive installations out of hand-cut Tyvek—a nonwoven material most familiar as an insulating wrap used in the construction industry. These environments might be fairy-tale forests or the sites of biological disasters. Perhaps both.
