Date of Graduation
MFA Creative Writing Thesis
Eberly College of Arts and Sciences
This thesis covers the body of work I created during my graduate studies at West Virginia University. My focus is printmaking; my work also consists of sculpture and installation. I will also discuss artists who have influenced my ideas and art making as well as the influence that conceptual art has had on contemporary artists working today.;The everyday: items/language that motivate my art making are those that are left, forgotten or unnoticed. This language offers stories and a history that documents an everyday presence. For example, a grocery list, before it is discarded, becomes a part of our memory and a message that is written in a book becomes a memory of a past event. A used coffee lid is a reminder of a past conversation and I use language that is overheard, which might have been forgotten if not brought back as art.
