Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
My thesis show is sort of a mock manifesto on the ephemeral making of art, especially my art. Automatic drawing and collage are major themes and redundencies that continue to find their way into what I do. I will show the dualities between what is past and what is present hoping to find the integral ingredient that caused the past to be present. I will make the viewer question what he or she believes in. We all know that the reason for the present is because of the events in the past, but do the events of the past hold a certain tyranny over the way we live or did we choose the products, philosophies and laws that we live by? Again, by the usage of automatic drawing and collage, each image will find another question for the original question. I will not seek answers because only tangible sciences deserve to find facts; art is not necessarily tangible.
