dc.description.abstract The primary goal for this thesis experience is to examine the connections and correlations between two-dimensional imagery and threedimensional form. The concept for this exploration came from genuine personal interest and sensitivity for multiple materials, techniques, and the dynamics and energy they create in relation to each other and their environment. My intention was to create a total environment in which the viewer receives not just a single frame perspective of a visual image or object, but instead becomes an interactive part of the space. This need to expand my work beyond a single object or pictorial frame of painting or photograph has evolved over the years from many different personal experiences and through my observation of other artists working in non-object orientations. Two artists that I have been particularly influenced by in terms of materials and use of space are the contemporary works of the Czech glass artists Dana Zamecnikova and her husband Marion Karel. Dana's work successfully utilizes both image and form by creating distinct interactive relationships between the two. She paints abstract yet recognizable imagery of people and animals on silhouettes of clear plate glass and then places them in specific public environments. (See Illustrations, # 1-2) en_US
