The work dealt with in this thesis paper represents the culmination of my artistic growth over the past three years, embodying the ideas and influences I have absorbed. It consists of four wall pieces that will be discussed separately and in detail in this paper. The paper is divided into the following four sections: Progress of Work, a brief survey of the experiences that have contributed to the development of the esthetic underlying the work presented here and that have led me to this stage in my academic and artistic career; Influences, dealing with the work of other artists that has had the greatest effect on my work; Techniques, discussing the methods employed in the thesis work; and Thesis Work, a discussion of the pieces themselves.
