Abstract: My thesis is divided into two sections. The first is a personal narrative relating my father's experience with cancer, and the second discusses the theory, motivation, and techniques that were employed in the creation of this thesis show. The narrative illustrates what the work is about and how it was that I came to the emotional state that gave insight to the show. It is, in my opinion, more faithful to the true meaning of the work than theory is capable of being. I did my best to maintain an informal and personal tone in the second half so that my discussion of the more technical aspects of the work would not dry out the intimacy and honesty that I did my best to imbue in the art work. As a reader feel free to choose which parts are most relevant to your intentions and skip what you like. The table of contents should be a sufficient tool in this endeavor.
