Class-with-Martynka

On Tuesday 11/24/15 artist Martynka Wawrzyniak came to LIU Post’s MFA & MA graduate thesis class to present her work and lead a critique on student work. Martynka gave a great time-line based presentation about her work both past and present. She presented her work directly from her website. (There is a lot to discover there so please further investigate when you can)

 Students presented a piece of their current work to the class and gained insight and advice from Martynka.

Students have been asked to leave their reactions in the comments section on our class blog. They have been asked:

What did you think of Martynka’s work?

Do you have a favorite piece or project?

Do you resonate with her ideas? If so, how?

How do her initial ideas play a role in how her works will be presented and displayed?
