Recent Alumni & Current AP Students Group Showat The Mankiw Family Gallery
The Mankiw Family Gallery, located on Waltham’sChapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School campus,is pleased to announce its new art show featuring work from recent alumni Robert Tiwan and current AP Studio Art students Elizabeth Leary, Chloe Briskin and Grant Li taking place May 1 – September 30, 2014.
Robert Tiwan dreams, thinks, loves and sleeps art. He grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia and is currently studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in Chicago, IL. He is a 20-year-old photographer who has an infinite reverence for capturing the exquisiteness of life. Photography has helped him treasure every moment he spends in the world, enabling him to distinguish life from an interminable perspective. Two years ago, he sought to expose himself more to what photography has to offer and learn more about the techniques used in it. Robert always has a huge admiration for building his own fictional characters and narrative in his artwork. Robert Tiwan (CH-CH 2013) is currently a student at SAIC. He is a photographer who has infinite reverence for capturing the exquisiteness of life. Visit him on the web: http://www.roberttiwan.com.
Tiwan’s work touches on his deep adoration for fantasy in art. This series of photographs was inspired by a recent dream. The dream involved the materialization of supernatural figures seeking vengeance and summoning numerous crows to cast doom on their surroundings. This dream ended with a high blast of lightning that left him not knowing how the story ended. These strikingly beautiful photographs capture the essential nature of universal fear and unknowing.
The culminating elective in the visual arts, AP Studio Art requires students to create a series of teacher-initiated assignments, as well as student-initiated assignments. By concentrating on a particular visual interest or problem, students gain experience in the formal, technical, and expressive means of the artist and, at the same time, develop a sense of quality in their own art.
