Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

One full moon night
by Song, Un Chu, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 8; 1569052
Abstract (Summary)

One Full Moon Night, my MFA Project Exhibition, is a series of surrealistic drawings. The main inspiration of my exhibition stems from memories of my childhood fantasies. My subject matter portrays children exploring a surrealistic world and growing from this new experience. Despite their young age, my characters are often unafraid of the odd setting they find themselves in. The different kinds of animals in my drawings explore the places alongside the children.

For this MFA exhibition, I presented thirteen graphite pencil drawings on illustration board, ranging in size from nine inches by fifteen inches to eighteen inches by twenty-seven and half inches. I chose graphite as the primary medium because it allows me to accentuate details. Additionally, I intended to make people focus on my fantastical settings and stories by creating black and white scenes.
