Limerence not hidden by animals

Limerence not hidden by animals

Senior Amanda Dabel is graduating this May with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Ceramics.

Before graduating Dabel has to present her BFA show at 5 p.m. on March 14 in the Tahoe Gallery, located on the third floor of Prim Library.

Like many artists before her, her show will reflect who she is as an artist. The show is titled, ‘Limerence’.

Limerence means, “the state of being infatuated or obsessed with another person, typically experienced involuntarily and characterized by a strong desire for reciprocation of one’s feelings but not primarily for a sexual relationship,” according
to the online Oxford Dictionary.

Dabel uses ceramic animal figures to show the strong emotions that humans hide.

“I do that because animals don’t hide their emotional state whatsoever,” said Dabel.

After graduating her future plans involve working with kids and teaching them about art.
