For the Senior Exhibition, graduating Redeemer art students set their own questions, respond to their deep passions, and create a cohesive body of work for public display. This time of challenge, soul searching, and commitment leads, usually, to a fabulously attended event in the Redeemer Art Gallery.

This year, due to Covid-19 and the closure of campus, these 5 artists have taken their projects online.  Using digital tools, they created an impression of how their projects would have taken form within the physical gallery.

The artists created their own pages, with their own images and words.  While the content here is coursework for the Senior Exhibition class, the work reflects their vision, not necessarily the views of Redeemer University.

Explore their work, and the conceptual and sensual worlds they have created!

What can we learn about our relationship with God when we rest in Him?

I ask  this personal question, and others, through abstract works of oil paint, gold leaf, and thick textures.

Sometimes, it’s okay to get angry.  The world is hurting because many people value power over environmental safety or even other people’s lives.  The title of my work comes from a speech given by Greta Thunberg at the U.N. Climate Action Summit:   "We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

Looking at Buddhist Mandalas and Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs, I am using colour and pattern to explore brokenness in creation, the relationship between geometry and animals, and how different cultures and religions can connect meaningfully.

In this series I pay tribute to my late dad, an exceptional role model to me. Pulling from various artistic influences, these oil paintings present a continuum between my dad’s lengthy ministry work in Europe and my own recent art studies in Italy, the country where he had spent the most significant amount of time working for Christian TV.
