Abstract: The drawings and paintings of facial expressions executed for thesis presentation were derived from my ordinary observation of contemporary society. While they are self-evident manifestations of experiences by man everywhere in the universe, it has been my aim to render a microcosm of these experiences. Whether they were initiated by outside forces or by profound psychological differences, the visible manifestation of experience and feeling was what I intended to render. Although the rendition of these experiences necessitated both the psychic and physiological changes that take place in an expression, I found that they acquired a certain universality. On the other hand, they evolved from my personal inquiry into the diverse encounters, conflicts, and dilemmas experienced by mankind.
