The purpose of this paper is a formal examination of the fine art exhibit titled A Tale of Two Dogs by Jeffrey A. Harris as a partial fulfillment of requirements for a Master of Fine Arts degree from Stephen F. Austin State University.
By examining the multiple established points of view within his artwork, the author questions these establishments and asks if this approach leads to a relevant way of seeing. Using expanded polystyrene foam as a sculpture medium, a series of artworks created during the MFA research process are conceptually analyzed to explore the value of maintaining a multiplicity of viewpoints within a single composition. Through the examination of the various artworks and techniques, the author discovers that using multiple, often divergent points of view, within a single artwork (and by extension, a single exhibit) benefits the artist as a method of pushing creativity forward.
