At The Study at Yale, guests are invited to tour our Aisling Gallery (translated as “vision, dream” in Irish), an intimate, relaxed space offering a unique opportunity for Yale students to exhibit their works on a rotating basis, fostering their artistic talent and giving others a chance to experience the student's art in a way that was not previously available to a broader audience.
Yale Photography Society
This semester the Yale Photography Society (YPS) has been exploring the theme of Impermanence and Decay. As shocking as it may seem, everything is finite. YPS wanted to understand what impermanence and decay mean to students. From the role of photography in the preservation of memory to the increasing threats to the preservation of the environment, YPS believes it is not about what we leave behind that matters, but what we leave for tomorrow. Within this theme, the group will be exhibiting photographs from various undergraduate students at Yale.

Yale University Class of 2021
Asher Liftin's main works of the show were two 80” x 60” paintings in primarily black and white that deal with velocity by creating forms out of painted swirls and the repetition and accumulation of these swirls. This is a sculptural way of painting as it is a constant pushing and pulling, using the dark swooping lines to produce depth and light tones to pull things forward. The final forms almost came loose, but are held together across the surface with the other subjects in a tight knot of darks and lights, frozen in conflict.
