The scale of Jenny Morgan’s works amplifies the intimate relationship her audience has with each painting and helps to create a larger-than-life version of her subjects. Morgan builds on the technical intricacies of her hyperrealism by wearing down, scrubbing away or painting over many of the features of her subjects. For the artist, wearing away at the subjects is at times an emotional roller coaster that is derived from the personal relationship and feelings she has towards the painting’s subject.
The figures “are naked and frontal, their explicit bareness tempered with raw fragility and meditative strength. Embodying the psycho-social dichotomy that often exists in the artist’s canvases, they appear to occupy their own realm, contemplating themselves and their bodies, and seeking balance between the id and the super-ego.”

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises by paying attention on purpose, in the present moment. It is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental and emotional experiences, without judgment. Research suggests that mindfulness meditation may reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.

Sahaja Meditation is a simple and spontaneous technique, which de-stresses mind, improves attention and brings inner peace and joy.
Normally our mind keeps working and we keep having thoughts from past or the future but as we go into meditation, our thoughts slow down and there is a gap between the two thoughts that keeps widening. This is the gap when we do not think and our mind relaxes.
This state of awareness is known as thoughtless awareness.
Sahaja Meditation is a simple to learn easy technique. It's an experience and we invite people from all age groups to come to our weekly meeting and experience this powerful technique.
Weekly Meetings staring from 3rd of September.
Every Wednesday from 5PM-6PM in Beering Hall, Room B242.
Every Saturday from 11AM-Noon in Lilly Hall, Room 3418.

"The Shape of Memory: Post-Holocaust Literary Representation"
Co-sponsored by the Purdue Jewish Studies and Religious Studies Programs
September 02 at 10:00 AM - September 29, 2014 at 7:00 PM
The bodies in Leah Yerpe’s large-scale works are multiplied in different poses, twisting, floating and falling on a ground purged of contextualizing marks. The models are not posed and have free reign to move in an immediate, improvised dance. This looseness contrasts with a fastidious drawing technique, wherein the bodies are captured as if formal elements in a collage.
Yerpe sees the figures as transformed from free individuals into symbolic ones, akin to the transformation of human experience in mythology and religion. The influence of mythology is often hinted at in the titles, though the work is not a direct illustration of the stories. Rather, the artist is after that kernel at the heart of the story, the core that will always resonate human experience.
