This statement describes, analyzes and comments on my thesis work, Discourse, which explores the figure and perspectives on body image as well as voyeurism. My experience drawing and interacting with my models was the catalyst for this work, from which illuminates my evolution from strictly a two dimensional artist to an installation artist and sculptor. My thesis exhibition is composed of four works: a mirror installation piece incorporating a sound track, and three sculptures. During the course of my Master of Fine Arts degree at Winthrop University, I researched a variety of artists, art movements and techniques, which influenced me in order to find my own voice. This statement examines my development as an artist as well as explains my thesis body of work.
