Thesis presentations are nerve-wracking enough without a bunch of rubberneckers showing up, but don’t let that stop you from going to see “Reflections,” a thesis exhibition by Arizona State University Master of Fine Art candidate Jason Ripper. The artist, who specializes in intermedia, slips from representational art to abstraction, at times building layers of meaning with both organic and inorganic elements including dialysis bags, water, and tubing.

What does it all mean? Well, there are the bones of a narrative here – something to do with body, nature, and the imagination – and those bones move and stir the imagination, but the artist has left it to the viewer to flesh out the story and provide some skin.
