Abstract

In supplement to my Masters of Fine Arts thesis exhibition, this dossier includes an extended artist statement, a transcribed interview with Nanaimo based abstract painter, Jonathan Forrest, and documentation of artwork produced during my studio research. The extended artist statement engages with loss, transition and incidence as these themes pertain to my art making process and its intersection with a personal tragedy that occurred part-way through my graduate studies. The statement is written in a retrospective style that acknowledges my own struggle towards an acceptance of loss and examines the evolution of my paintings during this period.
