The New York Studio School is excited to share the fourth of our Rotating 2020 MFA Thesis Exhibitions, featuring graduates Bee Chessman & Paula Sefer, curated by Graham Nickson & Karen Wilkin.


Bee Chessman writes, "I am depicting a reality that unites what is seen on the outside and what is hidden on the inside. I use intuitive, emotion-driven color within the structural bones of a logical form. I hope my paintings appeal to a human longing for beauty, order and truth."

Paula Sefer writes, "I paint in order to understand and accept my emotions, my heritage, my desires, conflicts and its connections to the outside world. I want to explore the relationship between psychology, society, and art as well as to find different interpretations for what our psyche represents in the modern world. Is it possible to forget where we came from and focus only on representations?

My paintings are all painted from imagination because I believe that exploring what lives inside my mind is the only way to show my real emotions, spontaneity, intensity and freedom."
