Spotted! Mandy Tan

Mandy Tan is one of the students on display at the LASALLE 2010 showcase. Mandy is a printmaking major who enjoys silkscreen and drypoint more than other traditional mediums. “I would love to incorporate watercolor into my works, and I am working on that. I enjoy repetition and patterns in almost every form. It provides me with a sense of comfort.”

“The featured work is a commentary on our society’s blind consumption of information as marketable goods,” Mandy explains. “It creates an irony with the idea of ‘bittersweet’ based on disaster images and consumable products. I am using images of disasters from the news and pair them with familiar consumable products. The newspapers and news reports are saturated with consumer product advertisements. With my work I want to create awareness within mainstream consciousness, and I want viewers to reflect upon our reaction to disaster news.”

The Visual Arts Exhibition is on view through June 10 at LASALLE College of the Arts.
