In this thesis paper l explore the factors contributing to my current art-making. I investigate motivations behind my practice and the conceptual and historical experience that create its foundation and background.
I will notate the development and exhibition examples of my current works over the past three years of MFA research. These exhibits are thematic in my artistic development.
There will be discussion of the relevance of my subject matter to broader influences primarily from a philosophical platform of which my choices of subject matter, aesthetics in materials, and elements contribute to art-making from "thought to form.”
