Abstract

This paper discusses a series of paintings exploring the effects of isolation in the human experience. The focus concerns both a specifically twenty-first century manner and a more universal framework. Drawing inspiration from her past experiences, the author also references a number of artists such as Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, and Gerhard Richter. Completed in both egg tempera and oil paint, the discussed paintings feature a variety of styles to raise nuanced questions about the nature of isolation.
