Savanna O'Grady BFA Painting Thesis Spring 2015
The basis of my visual thesis is to create the setting of my invented world Outcast Wasteland. The visual narrative is a montage of the Runaway child’s escape to Outcast Wasteland; where both fantasies and those who are rejected from the norms of our reality are banished to. The imagery of this narrative draws from my own adolescent experiences of escapism. The materials I used to create this piece include: watercolor, ink, and pen on aquabord. My overall approach for completing my visual thesis was to create a setting for the narratives I’ve imagined, while following the examples of artists whose work is of a continuous visual narrative.
