Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Between a Place and Candy
by McKenzie, Annelie, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 14; 1523265
Abstract (Summary)

My Master of Fine Art project exhibition, Between a Place and Candy, presents thirteen paintings that reference other artworks from both historical and contemporary sources. These acts of appropriation are performed as an art fan with particular attention paid to the dimension of gender. The process of painting itself is referenced, incorporating impasto brushwork, trompe l'oeil, and various craft materials such as glitter, rhinestones, and pompoms. The use of these techniques may be seen as a stylized system of scrapbooking which functions in order to engage with other artwork, artists, and their stories.
