This thesis discusses the relationship between presence and void in relation to two pieces being found within one. A product of my upbringing, the monotony and multiples gave me the opportunity to continue my pattern of processing personal emotions through the artistic process. Very physically and conceptually fluid, the pieces are all visually singular with ties to architecture or city planning as well as influences from other artists that work with positive and negative.
