Samuel Powers

Samuel Powers’ paintings, made with spray paint and oil sticks, are a way for him to navigate what seems to be a very chaotic time in the world. He tries to convey that chaos complemented by peaceful stillness. A sophomore at BU majoring in Philosophy and minoring in Visual Arts, he hopes to be content with whatever path life chooses for him.

Sofija Chroneos

Sofija Chroneos, CFA ‘20/21, is in a five-year BFA/MA program in Sculpture and Studio Art Education. Her sculptures are often based on themes of time, growth, and self-reflection: with a variety of materials such as wood, styrofoam, and plaster. Her recent piece, Ask Me What Time Is Made Of, Fall ‘17, incorporates instant coffee dissolved within plaster, to capture both an aroma and an atmosphere of change. The piece mirrors itself through leveled planes, both reflecting itself and providing a window to the spaces surrounding it. In the future, Sofija hopes to create work that is evocative of both introspection and awareness of the surrounding world.

                      Kai Medina

Kai Medina, BU ‘21, studies Biology, specializing in Ecology & Conservation. He focuses on photography that captures an overall variety of life, observing details of his surroundings that often go unnoticed. Using a Canon EOS Rebel T6, usually with a Macro 100mm lense, he wishes his photographs to accurately show what he sees in the world, capturing day to day changes and the consistent stream of new stories being told. His family introduced him to photography several summers ago, and he has been practicing ever since. Photography changed his life by giving him the chance to become more outgoing through experiencing more than he ever thought he would.
