MFA Candidate: Studio Arts

Dagny is currently second year graduate student, she is an illustrator and printmaker. Originally from Colorado, she received her BA in Classical Studies from the University of British Columbia. Dagny’s work primarily discusses the anxieties of living in the modern American West. She explores the inheritance of stolen land, the industrial exploitation of the landscape, and cultural observations of the region, both of what we put on display and what we choose to conceal. Another major theme of her work is the dueling interplay between human ambition and natural entropy: the permanent consequences our actions have on the land, and the chaotic nature of the environment that threatens our own existence.
