Title: A Journey into self-actualization
Author: Rubar, William
Abstract: The MFA Thesis Exhibition is a presentation of ceramic sculpture. The theme for this body of work is a self-portrait that uses text as an integral part of the composition. The medium is clay, which interacts with the two-dimensional and three-dimensional properties of space. Therefore, it is my goal to establish a union with these dimensional properties. My tablet paintings serve to catalog significant events affecting both our culture and my life, resulting in a self-portrait. These paintings create a dialogue between the emotion of language, passage of time and the properties of space. The preparation of the clay and the construction of the work involve an intense physical interaction, which has been a part of my life since early years. This continued, intentional muscularity is sustained through the mounting of the work onto the wall, and is a part of the self-portrait. Finally, it is my hope that the audience begins to create their own self-portrait as they view this exhibition.
