An Art Collection: Themes and Progress
A Self Art Study
As a highly meticulous and organized person there is an inner desire to hold on to and document any work that I have created. While work during the early years of childhood was lost due to immigration from one country to another, a significant amount of work in my middle to late childhood and adulthood has been documented. As an artist, it is fascinating to see the growth that happens from one project to the next. Especially, from one year to the next. The main categories that I discovered in my collection were early years drawings, notebook doodles, experimental drawings and paintings, self-portraits, and social critique art and design. The categories fall between the ages of nine and twenty-seven. The artwork does not follow any particular media or subject. Instead, my artistic development contains consistent themes that may be visible through growth over time.
The following autobiographic paper explores my artistic developed from a young age to adulthood.
