Eve St. Laurent
Eve has been drawing and taking photos for as long as she can remember. She was intrigued by the ability to create things without any rules or boundaries. That's one of the main reasons she chose not to go to college, because she wanted to her my own path and art with no restrictions. Deadlines are difficult for her to achieve because she always stresses and crams an unnecessary amount of work into a small amount of time. She always seems to make it work. That's how she goes about everything she does; make it work.
The past few years she's been interested in the human form and trying to replicate the way shadows look on skin, using a simple graphite pencil. It's a very tedious and delicate process, but satisfying when she's finished a piece after hours of dedication. She's reached a lot of goals so far and she'd like to keep pushing herself to make and achieve more.
MEDIUM: ILLUSTRATION / PAINT
Charlie Piper is a sophomore majoring in Studio Art at the University of Vermont. Born and raised in Seattle, Charlie’s art has been strongly influenced by the forests and mountains of Washington, which are recurring themes in his artwork. Before taking art classes at UVM, he mostly focused on ink and pencil drawings, but is now enrolled in his third painting class which has shifted his attention to that field. In his Color Theory and Invention course, Charlie has been studying color relationships and is experimenting with large scale abstract acrylic paintings. As an art history minor, he has studied Greek, Hindu, and Renaissance art which has allowed him to draw inspiration from a diverse group of historical artwork. You are likely to find Charlie skiing at Sugarbush Mountain or painting in UVM’s Williams Hall in his free time.
Born and raised in the Finger Lakes, Eli grew to love sailing, skiing, and blowing glass in his father's studio. He was mesmerized by the physical process and craftsmanship that goes into making each piece.
MEDIUM: SPRAY PAINT
Speak Soft Spoken
The past few years he has experimented with many different mediums within the world of visual art, the whole time searching for a medium that best represents himself and the way he sees things. He came to realize that one singular material or medium is not enough for him to fully express himself, his ideas, and his emotions. He used to consider himself only a painter, only a mural artist, but over time he came to realize that he is an interdisciplinary artist. His recent works are a step closer to reaching a full and accurate level of expression. Within these works he uses painting, collage, and drawing to help him understand himself and his human experience.
