• Symbioses, Recollect: MFA Thesis - Printmaking

      Christie, Kimberly (2017-05)
      ‘Symbioses: Recollect’ focuses on themes of memory and relationship. Symbolic ceramic sculptures join dreamy relief prints in simplifying the complexities of these ideas. The word ‘symbiosis’ translates to ‘living together’. Ranging from mutually helpful to seemingly unaffected to harmful, these relationships can be divided into three separate categories: mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism. Interpersonal relationships can be just as, if not more so, complicated. Nostalgic family photographs that have been digitally altered and veiled by color and image communicate my interpretation of recollection. These concepts are additionally bonded through color, material, and form.
