    Thesis project on the Salem Witch trials of 1692
  • The work I created for my thesis project is centered around the eventsthat took place during the Salem Witch trials in 1692. I worked tocreate a mood and feeling when looking at the works. I sought less todepict the events outright but to create works that call upon the moodsand overall tone of the time period. I wanted people to look at themand feel like they were almost gazing at a memory. Like memories, noteverything is clear all at once. Things fade and push back. They becomeobscured over time but where parts become obscured feelings andemotions become underlined. You may not always remember just what thecolor of something was or what someone was wearing but you remember howyour felt. I sought to create a balance of memory and emotion in theseworks.
