Closing Reception – March 1 (7pm-9pm)

A thesis exhibition demonstrates a collection of work to contemplate human emotion and interaction under a given circumstance. Christopher’s work is abstracted imagery found in deemed popular culture magazines. In essence his work is commenting on life occurrence. Anna Mansberger’s series of portraits captures the importance of her subject matter by repetition and showcasing the subject’s belongings. Morgan Janssen’s work manipulates the figure stressing tensions and attitudes in each sculpture. Together we have created a visual showcase of human experiences.


CHRIS SCHUMAKER: I attempt to preserve. Whether preserving a thought, memory or feeling, selected imagery implicates abstracted life occurrences. I’m interested in the interaction of life and how perception plays a roll in shaping our cognition.
I tend to work based in the medium of collage. I most recently moved into the object realm and tend to further my exploration in combining the two. Website: / Email:

ANNA MANSBERGER: My work consists of a series of portraits in a response to the loss of someone near to me. The accumulation of portraits is isolated with simple backdrops to bring the focus to the subtleties and details presented. The paintings reveal an insight to this individual by creating a dialogue between them. Website: / Email:

MORGAN JANSSEN: My work focuses on ambiguous figures by not accentuating a gender but how the body interacts with itself. The figures lead towards their singular selves internalizing their identity in settings of discomfort and awkwardness. I am pushing towards the progression of a unique internal dialogue with each piece. Website: / Email:
