Creating Myself: Art and Identity
Mentor: Dr. Jamie Kemp
How do I live creatively? It is not uncommon for artists to view their art as inherently linked to their identities. Some even suggest that the creative act fosters the creation of the self. For my Keystone, I draw upon the fields visual art and psychology to investigate this apparent connection between artistic expression and identity formation. Using artistic inquiry as self-examination, I made a series of paintings and assemblages on the topic of identity. This video presents an informative tour of the virtual gallery I created.
