This thesis examines the connection between art and its viewer and how this understanding of audience interaction impacts the way I create my work. The inspiration and spiritual basis for my work is explored to show the meaning behind my thesis collection. This document also explores the methodology and processes I use in the creation of my art. I also discuss the way in which my work is displayed with consideration towards lighting and the creation of the art being exposed from start to finish for my audience. The concluding thoughts in this thesis sum up the importance of religious symbolism and my recreation of the appropriated imagery that I have given a new voice to through my methodology and interpretation as an artist.
