Title: Searching
Author: Forster, Lisa (Elizabeth)
Abstract: The purpose of this Thesis has been an exploration of the means of composing paintings that are personally expressive, meaningful in concept, and aesthetically exciting, while being structurally well designed and executed. An intensive search in the areas of concept, or idea development; design and composition; as well as the technical concerns in choosing media and the methodology of its use has resulted in growth, increased knowledge, and many new discoveries. Each area has been systematically explored in great depth in a productive and effective sequence. The process involved in the development of concept was researched through many avenues. The areas of art philosophy, human development, psychology, mythology, historic viewpoints, artist's diaries and writings, artist's biographies, interviews, and personal experience have been considered. The study of design and composition has been extensive. Both pictorial material, sculpture, and writings of theory have been studied. Investigation of varying media and techniques was undertaken to determine the best means of giving visible form to the concepts developed. This was done by researching along with a lot of trial and error. Each part of this investigation and working process has contributed to the body of work that evolved.
