Emily Singer is third year at UCSD majoring in Visual Arts Studio and minoring in Chinese studies originally from Santa Monica, California. Her work is inspired by Japanese comics and animations, folktales and mythology, as well as the art scene of the Los Angeles area.
Tucked Away is a series of three mixed media drawings (14X17 inches) of locations on the UCSD campus that are hidden gems. None of these locations are in plain sight; they have to be found. Many students feel that the school environment at UCSD can be very stressful. Luckily, there are many tucked away places that students can go to get a breath of fresh air and relax between classes or study sessions. In these drawings, man-made structures are present but the viewer still gets the sense that they are surrounded and sheltered by plants or trees.
