Shawn Leary

 

In May of 2022, Shawn Leary will be graduating from Georgia College with a Bachelor of Arts degree and concentration in Studio Fine Art. While growing up in Lawrenceville, Georgia, she learned about how art can help people express thoughts visually and creatively. Throughout her collegiate career, Shawn’s main focuses have been on photography and printmaking. During her senior year, she took the opportunity to advance her photography skills with an independent study. Recently, she has taken an interest in making wallpaper and plans to continue exploring the printing processes behind it. Overall, Shawn enjoys the challenge of making new art using various methods, so that her viewers have an array of works to survey.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

By using printmaking as well as digital printing, I will compare people to keys and containers. In combining these themes, I have created three strong black and white images along with a colored pattern. The three images will be printed onto paper using linoleum blocks and print screens, then framed and mounted atop sheets of personally designed wallpaper. I plan to print on repositionable paper for the wallpaper on the central wall and below the windows. On the outer walls, I will digitally print my pattern onto thin and flowy paper which will cascade down onto the floor of MoFA.
