FRAGMENTED LAYERS | Works by Christy Aitken


An exploration of our perceptions of life and its struggle.

Christy Aitken's paintings consist of isolated images that are juxtaposed within the picture plane. Parts of the paintings are deliberately left unfinished, accentuating emptiness. Contemplating mortality and our perceptions of life and its struggle are implied. Aitken uses lost and found lines as well as the haunting shape of the Loblolly Pine as a symbol of endurance. Our society struggles with the continued racism, intolerance, and abuse. Her figures are visual expression of these struggles. |

Compas Prep Student Photo Exhibit

Compass Prep is a multifaceted environment where we partner with home-school parents to give students in grades 9 through 12 a place to grow socially and intellectually. The structure of Compass Prep fosters growth and academic success, and also offers opportunities to encourage the whole person. Classes are provided by independent instructors and are at instruction levels needed for college preparation. Social activities for peer-group interactions are planned monthly alongside meaningful, community service projects throughout the year. This well-rounded approach satisfies the home-schooled, high school students’ need for independence and fellowship.
