Senior Art Exhibit: Derek Parnell


Derek Parnell shares his contribution to the Spring 2016 Senior Exhibition. His work is introspective in nature, using ideas of secrecy and revelation regarding his own personal life and experiences.

In his artistic statement he states, “Using the concepts of a blank slate and the human form, these ambiguous figures each tell a story. Through simple gestures and posture, they convey the concept that every person in a crowd has their own life, thoughts, and motivations. As a whole, the series explores the complexities and nuances of human interaction.”
