Abstract: Reflected in the works I am presenting as my thesis is my experience of the world. These are works intended as visual poems, some of which are perhaps more specifically visual epigrams. They are structured by the interacting relations between the physicalness of certain materials, objects, or images of these, and the cultural and psychological connotations associated with them in the given context. Perceived within this complex structure, those ordinarily common, indifferent objects attain unforeseen, unsuspected significance; so saturated with metaphoric, associative content, they transcend their objecthood. The push-pull relation between the different materials and their implications is what charges the situation with life, that presence so disquieting. But it is precisely this quality in the work that in its mysterious way breaks thought away from its bindings to habit and common sense, and allures it out onto the realm of the poetic.
