Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Launch. Absurd Excavations; Part B
by Huff, Nathan J., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 9; 1486492
Abstract (Summary)

My recent drawing and painting installations create freewheeling narratives: personal stories of suspending gravity, traversing emotional vertigo, and sorting reservoirs of memories. In the exhibition, The Launch. Absurd Excavations; Part B, fragmented and peripheral narrative strategies are investigated. Drawings, paintings, and sculptural objects share metaphorical and formal visual connections to one another when included in a gallery space. My goal is to create a space in which my own experience of reconstructing memory merges with a collective appreciation of how an image functions. The Absurd Excavations series deal with levels of liminality and layering disjunctured images in hopes of assembling a poetic narrative.
