Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Biting Animals
by Cooper, Torii, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 6; 1466094
Abstract (Summary)

The sculpture exhibition Biting Animals was comprised of five vignettes designed to create one over-all piece. Each vignette consisted of a woman situated in a difficult or distressed position with one or more animals. They were connected to one another by overall composition, eye contact, and gesture. These sculptures were all life-sized so as to draw the viewer in and confront them on the viewer's physical plane. The intent of the show was to investigate the frustrations humans feel at being excluded from nature.
