Meet UConn’s MFA Studio Art Class of 2024. Working in a broad range of art-making, the class features:

Logan Ray Bishop utilizes printmaking to examine process, word, and tactility factors of art’s total image. He focuses on poetics, explorations of print, and their interaction with drawing to materialize form.

Jennifer Davies is a photographer and multimedia artist who enjoys engaging with themes of surrealism and ambiguous narrative. Primarily working with film photography, she walks the line between documentary and staged compositions, questioning the real, observable world by seeking out and interacting with its subtle curiosities.

Kenneth Heyne’s paintings and ceramics confront the history of abstract painting. His work simultaneously considers domestic wares and ideas around utopia.

Rossie Stearns is a multidisciplinary artist from Austin, Tx, whose process-heavy practice explores tensions between dualities by bringing together traditional modes of painting and material experimentation. Stearns received her BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014.

Noah S. Thompson is an image-maker and storyteller who uses literature and photography to investigate the relationship between person and place. They take inspiration from mythology and folktales to document the environment and find the familiar in the unknown.
