Faculty & Staff Art Show

This February, the Art Department hosted a reception to celebrate the Faculty & Staff Art Show in the Lyceum Gallery in the Montaukett Learning Resource Center. Several of these artists were interviewed about their pieces.

 Assistant Professor Ralph Masullo showed three black and white photographs of weathered carpentry tools. These tools belonged to his grandfather. He was gifted these because he showed an interest in carpentry as a hobby.  These tools stayed in his basement unharmed until 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit. His basement was flooded for several weeks. When the water was finally removed, he decided not to restore these tools. These photographs embrace the wear and tear on these antiques.

 Art Instructor Christopher Bors Discussed his two process pieces, Agent Orange. These were were created through laying down paint and then pressing a textured object into the paint. A process painting is a painting where the specific process involved in the creation of it is more important than the outcome. These process painting were created in an effort to “let yourself go,” which is something many creators struggle with.

Adjunct Instructor Andrea Cote Contributed a collection of prints. Each print was created using a different printing process, though the subject is the same; it is her but full of holes. Cote says that these holes represent the interactions between our bodies, minds, and the outside world. She views us all as permeable bodies in more ways than one. Our cells move resources through them, our pores sweat, and our minds are changed by the opinions around us.
