Abstract

This written thesis is the accompanying documentation of my Masters of Fine Art thesis exhibition --- recollection. This exhibition presented a collection of oil paintings of created over three years in the graduate program through the College of Creative Arts at West Virginia University. My personal experiences during this time directly affected the paintings displayed through this exhibition, including marriage, deployment, and the birth of my first child. Each of my created works references a photograph of a family member or myself. These images capture moments in time and can reflect a narrative to the audience, along with ideas of nostalgia, heritage, and this effect of memory on the present.
