Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Crowd
by Taylor, Camilla, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 11; 1499213
Abstract (Summary)

My artwork is comprised of three-dimensional and two-dimensional prints. The three-dimensional prints I refer to as "volumes." The printed imagery of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces is generated through relief printing. My artwork deals with the concepts of narrative, repetition, and what has been called "otherness." Narration in the artwork refers to the capacity people have to project onto or empathize with any object that has similarities to humans. My work invites the viewer to empathize with the figures, often without ever reaching beyond the uncanny quality of being inanimate bodies. The figures engage with each other in their posture and position in a room, and sometimes engage the viewer. Their ambiguity and lack of personality invites the viewer to associate with the figures, to lose themselves, while at the same time implying anonymity in the viewer.
