“Embers” by Ethan Engel, 36″w x 24″h.

Ethan Engel is a 2015 BHSU graduate in Art and Graphic Communication. Art has helped Ethan overcome his struggle with Asperger’s—a form of high-functioning autism that creates difficulties in social interactions as well as motor development and communication.

“I took it as how you live with your disability in your everyday life,” Engel said. “I decided to do something that talks about my past by expressing a journal that shows my internal conflicts and struggles of understanding how my autism functions.”

While working on another piece with his instructor last year, the two decided to try holding the journal image backward. The words were more difficult to read this way, which Engel said correlated to how it was hard for him to function with autism during certain times.

Engel uses a wood burning toolkit to burn the lettering into the canvas. He uses a natural cotton fabric that resembles the color of his skin. The burnt lettering and texture was made to look like old scars.

“I want people to try and understand what autism is all about,” Engel said. “How I deal with situations, my emotions. When you’re hearing me talk I do have that processing issue,” Engel said. “That’s why I wanted to play with the viewer a bit and get them interacted and try to connect with how the story goes.”
