This body of work by Jocelyn Foye will experiment with the negotiation of public and private identities. It explores the reality of living in different political climates and the mark we make while in it. The reality of oppression and acceptance, how they overlap in our public and private identities, and uses the individual as the personification of the relationship between church and state.
This series of work by Jason Smith explores advanced, mysterious Neolithic cultures, their artifacts and their impact on our historical timeline. "I chose 7 ancient obscure civilizations to highlight and research what are known about them and the remnants of what they left behind. They are Atlantis, Vinca culture, Nuraghe civilization, Jomon period of ancient Japan, The Hongshan culture, The Nomoli figures of Sierra Leone and The Indus Valley civilization. These cultures all have common links with symbolism in regards to death, fertility and bull-serpent worship, issues with deciphering language, advanced metallurgy and sculpture carving techniques for “stone age” inhabitants." writes Smith.
