Abstract:

When someone close to you passes away, we are often left with only memories. Some memories remain vivid and definite while others seem to fade away into a questionable uncertainty; sometimes leading one to question which parts of the memories are real and which parts have been made up. I am interested in exploring how these memories shift, skew, become exaggerated and change over time, while still maintaining great emotional significance to a person. Stories have been used for centuries to pass down information from one generation to the next. Through my research I have chosen to focus on oral narratives that were passed down to me by my late grandfather at a very young age. The work for Intrinsic Narrative is based on stories of my own personal family history. The result is a body of work that shows the relics or artifacts that were the result of some implicit action or what remains at the end of the story. Intrinsic Narrative is a visual exploration of some of the stories that are closely tied in to my own memories of lost loved ones. These works are meant to convey aspects of personal narratives, implementing the concepts of memory, scale, ghostliness, cause and effect, and illusion. The re-fabrication of these objects becomes a trigger for memory. The play on scale and true materiality were chosen to further the question of what is real and what is not. These works convey to the viewer a glimpse into my personal narratives; or provide them with an amount of visual information that can lead them to question their own memories or past. Through the creation of these works I have set out to shed some insight onto my own identity and sense of self. The M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition, Intrinsic Narrative, was held between April 26th and May 1st, 2014 in the University Art Gallery in the School of Art and Design at San Diego State University..
