Date on Master's Thesis/Doctoral Dissertation
The hurried aspects of daily living exhaust me. Speed is the operative word. Apparently everyone wants more of it. Not me. While I value the innovations that speed up my onerous tasks, in my artwork I am attracted to its opposite--repose. I try to slow the pace of life around me, capturing those moments of stillness. This thesis examines a body of work, eight paintings and four drawings, that reflect this aversion to speed.
