Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Small Act
by Herkelrath, Dana N., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 9; 1486491
Abstract (Summary)

"Small Act" is an exhibit that explores the idea that a small act has an unexpected and often large impact. The work represented includes a series of banners and sculptures that combine image and text from collage, photography, monoprinting and found objects and is expressed through the graphic processes of silkscreen, monoprinting, digital printing and sculpting. In creating the work I combined familiar objects, symbolic imagery, natural and factual references to convey my thinking in a unique and cohesive aesthetic. The final work allows the viewer to consider the ideas through an unexpected use of image, subject and information.
