To create an exhibit drawn from works by Studio Art graduates may seem to be a daunting task; faced with so many choices, the result could become merely arbitrary or too disparate to cohere as an exhibition. But in fact, my experience was quite the contrary. All artists have at least one thing in common—they all have influences. And for all of these artists, one of their most influential experiences was the time they spent as Studio Art students at the College of Charleston.

In this exhibit, I see the influences as well as the individual accomplishments of artists who studied here at the College. Whether faintly or pronounced, the impressions of their Studio Art professors resonate in these works. The goal, however, of myself and Dr. Marian Mazzone was to choose a select group of Studio Art alumni whose works have continued to develop, becoming their own unique creations and contributions. By limiting the selection to Studio Art graduates of the past ten years, we were able to look at the work of artists who are still developing their sense of “self” in the art world, while also still having some identity with the College.

Born in Taiwan, Lisa Chou’s childhood was divided between the urban jungle of Taipei and the sugar cane-lined countryside of the south. She moved to the United States with her family, living in various cities until they settled in South Carolina. She received her BA in painting from the College of Charleston. Currently, she is a MFA candidate in printmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I think of making a drawing as building a playground. This playground is a visual space for the viewer to imagine and wonder. He or she is invited to explore the possibilities of narratives and meanings because of every individual’s unique experiences and memories of the world.
