TIME AND SPACE
(installation), 2011, watercolor on translucent paper, thread, wood, and fluorescence neon light, 120" x 120" x 180"
Neglect time and space
Irresistible yearning
Transformation from vivid recollection
Transformation from absence

The physical configuration is achieved by extending the space from micro to macro through repetition, using a multitude of watercolor paper. The representation is worked into an architectural scheme to occupy the space where it can be either virtual or real. Color is incorporated to form gestures—for example, a direction, repetition, or creation—as well as a sense of illusion. Formally, each color is amorphous, hazy, muted, and ambiguous, evoking a haunting ambiance. The assembled structure explores the relationship between wall, ceiling and floor. It creates a three-dimensional space, which is a site for interaction and exchange.

The MFA Fine Arts program reflects the diversity of New York’s many art worlds. Together, the faculty and students form a community of established and emerging artists from many backgrounds who work across disciplines and modes of practice. Our main goals are to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which students can thrive and develop as artists, to foster rigorous critical engagement with contemporary art and other cultural forms, and to produce an ongoing conversation, through work as much as through words, about what we make, how we make it and why.

The MFA Fine Arts program attracts ambitious emerging artists from many countries and backgrounds. In their commitment to art, and to one another, they provide a foundation for artistic growth that extends beyond graduation and forms an ongoing platform of professional support.
