Thesis Statement

Beauty in Diversity

What constructs a culture, people group, or individual? Ultimately one’s values, community, and surroundings play a significant role. Through research and interviews with people from all over the world I intend to show the audience a hint of how these can come together to create something beautiful and unique. My goal is to show how individuals, each with uniquely different backgrounds, have a beautiful story to tell. Focusing on how their environment and surroundings have impacted who they are, and how they have come out stronger from that. In diversity there is beauty and strength. I have created paintings and booklets of individuals from Sweden, Mongolia, Sudan, and Colombia. The background patterns and colors in the paintings are unique to each culture and the transparency symbolizes the effect the culture has had on each individual. The booklets create a personal connection into each story, through visual expression and quotes.
