Abstract: This thesis is represented by an exhibition of paintings on canvas. The size and number of canvases to be included in the thesis presentation is determined by the available space in the Weatherspoon Gallery for which they were designed. Each canvas is a circle seven feet in diameter. Because of the large scale of the canvases, the group constitutes a walk-in. The scale, shape and proportion are designed to modify the environment. All canvases are mounted on axis to permit manual rotation by the spectator. The possibility of participation leaves the order open to random chance patterns which are controlled to some degree by the surface divisions of each canvas.
