College and old projects
I've developed and grown as an artist over the years. As I look back on work I did in college, I think about new techniques I've learned and ways I would do things differently.
I keep this archive to record my growth and honor the hard work of the past. Each show contains some gems that were particularly successful, but overall these projects no longer represent my current skill set.
Enjoy the trip down memory lane.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (ST. OLAF COLLEGE)
Charge Artist; Designer: Lisa V. Kudas
This project was part of the Bonde Career Advancement Opportunity Award from St. Olaf College. As an alumnus I was brought back to serve as Charge Artist for the show and help train the current student painter.
This show required building up and sculpting physical texture, as well as painting on a steep rake.
THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Charge Artist; Designer: Benjamin D. Olsen
This design was inspired by old matchboxes, so the color palette included warm reds, oranges and browns. A "match book" procenium plug was my personal project.
The design also included a wooden staircase painted to look like corroded metal, and lots of spatter.
