The Ground We Stand On
Anderson Gallery
November 2 - February 10, 2023

As a child I would spend summers at our family farm in Virginia. This ritual of traveling from the North to the south all the while being fed the stories of how we grew to gain the property and how the 'Big House ' I would be staying at was built by my 3 times Great Grandmothers sons. The home was a step back in time prior, to the flight of the Great Migration sent masses toward opportunities in the North. Through this experience I was drawn to the history of the log cabin that held generations, of my family in a home surrounded by photographs that chronicled our family history.

The bear statue that I have painted is covered in the local flora of Massachusetts, specifically the Southeastern region that Bridgewater State belongs to. Painted in the style of a linocut print, black and white flora fills the bear from head to toe.

This is part of the ongoing project of fiberglass bears across the BSU campus. Each artist is selected to bring a different voice and perspective on what it is to be a BSU bear. Ms. Cushman is the second BSU student to have been selected.

It’s something that often happens to Micaila “Mickey” Britto-Patten. She’s standing with other United States veterans, and she watches as people come up and thank the men in the group for their service, moving right past her as if she were invisible.

Turchon Tunnel
August 2022- July 2023

This body of work examines notions of physical and emotional death. These ideas are explored in moderately sized porcelain works decorated with colored porcelain slips and glazes. The figurative works are covered with painted and drawn imagery and/or surrounded by sculpted natural environments. These described elements of landscape are so immersive they camouflage the figures, making the two aspects completely intertwined, dissolving the boundaries between material and ethereal. Landscape is used as both a setting and metaphor to describe the complexity of life and the physicality of death.
