Cal Lutheran presents the artists’ reception of Escapism, a collection of artwork from the Visual Arts Department’s senior class of 2021. This exhibit embodies the realities that these artists explored during the Covid-19 pandemic. Virtual exhibit can be found here.
Jiarong Bi focuses on painting and sketching and is from Oak Park, California. She takes inspiration from music, film, and Expressionism. Lauren Graf is a mixed media artist from Carpinteria who draws her inspiration from vintage aesthetics and Art Nouveau illustrations. Though her art, she seeks out a more beautiful reality with a fantastical twist. Combining elements of beauty and horror, Nicholas Hayes from Los Angeles gathers inspiration from sci fi and fantasy to create sculptural pieces that seek to exploit the aesthetic pleasure of the uncanny. Born and raised in Hawaii, mixed media artist Nicole Ishii looks at her native Hawaiian culture in a new light through her artwork. Jasmine Alexandra O is a Thousand Oaks-based multimedia artist, honing her skills in the field of art and creating artwork that explores Imaginative Realism.
Join us live and in person to celebrate these amazing artists and young alumni during Homecoming Weekend.
