This thesis is an exploration in the ways that painting and the specific historical languages of abstraction can represent attitudes, strategies and processes that arise under competing pressures to be unwavering in our decisions and our public and self-images, while also staying easy-going and adaptable in the face of recent technologies, social media platforms, and instantaneous and overwhelming access to information and opinions. Through a combination of gestural mark-making and wobbly geometric design, I reflect a human desire to create and contribute in productive and meaningful ways.
