Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Fragmented: Moving Away from Control

Abstract (Summary)

My project titled Fragmented: Moving Away From Control contains five triptych lithographs, as well as five mixed media mezzotint, intaglio prints. Human language concretely labels and defines all the physical objects we perceive. In turn, we are constantly trying to make visual and spatial sense of the objects that surround us. Through my processes and subject matter I am more concerned with revealing the unquantifiable, as opposed to the creation of a set story or plot. I consider myself an artist who makes prints that are influenced by the precepts of Surrealism and Abstraction. Stone lithography is my primary medium. I work through my unconscious and try to stray away from recognizable imagery.
