From Obsessio to Epiphania: A Visual Journey

  • Author / Creator

  • In this Work of Art thesis, I have created a series of eleven assemblages art pieces as a way of making visible my lived experience of invisibility and self-alienation. For each assemblage piece, I have provided a written reflection in order to place the visual image of the art piece within a theological, creative, personal, and spiritual context. I have mapped these eleven art pieces together within the broader theme of a pilgrimage in order to provide an external bridge of understanding from, and into, the internal theological landscape of my spiritual journey towards wholeness. I have used the creative process of assemblage art as a method of reconstructing an authentic sense of self, and deepening my felt experience of the sacred.
