ANDREA BUCHMANN VAZSONYI
JUNIOR , BACHELOR OF ARTS, DEPARTMENT OF ART AND ART HISTORY, COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS
Buchmann is interested in raising awareness of challenging social issues such as racism, xenophobia, and antisemitism. She utilizes historical references in her work to draw parallels from the past to contemporary problems. In her woodcut “Lost Potential”, she depicts a pile of hairbrushes and toothbrushes confiscated from the Jews during World War II. Her intent is to get the viewers of her work to contemplate self- reflect, and ultimately take the impressions with them once they leave the gallery. She hopes her art will inspire people to discuss these issues with others and to take actions towards becoming a more understanding and tolerant society.
