Trevon Tapp: Anniversary Art Exhibit

 

I am an undergraduate student at Utah State University in Logan UT. I am studying art education with a studio focus on printmaking.

I really enjoy the process of discovery and experimentation. That is why I want to be a teaching artist and I feel this also shows in my work. The work I do is nonrepresentational in nature and mixes many different printmaking techniques. Because of this art making driven focus the work is more about the process then it is the finished product. I put down layer after layer constantly responding to what I have in front of me. Many of the works are the products of a larger body of work whittled down until I have something I am satisfied with.

While much of the work revolves around this process of discovery I am interested in the experiences we all go through and they ways in which we react to those experiences as well as the restrictions we impose upon ourselves. If I were to pin down something my finished work is trying to express, beyond the ideas warped up in making it, this would by my intellectual starting point.
