Hannah Celeste Dean's MFA Thesis Exhibition
March 6th 6-9 pm
"I paint directly from images of Masters' works (those canonized through Google search), but rather than rendering them out, I fling them into being. When I'm using these painting cliches (think ovals, dogs, portraits), I want to do a sort of justice to them. They can't just be 'pretty', they need to exist in an unsettled, in-between state. They still need to be beautiful, just in an aggressive way."
