dc.description.abstract This creative project represents a union of art and fiction. I have found, in my work as an English major and printmaking minor, that the two areas can be closely related. Fiction can induce vivid images in the reader's mind; this project is an experiment in which I allowed these images to materialize and become works worthy to be contemplated themselves.The works enclosed are not illustrations they do not necessarily represent the action in or the intentions of the fiction with which they correspond. I did not wish to limit the fiction in this way. Instead I chose to create images that were very personal responses to the work. This allows the art to be appreciated in itself. Both the fiction and the art intertwine, but are each separate parts of a whole.The fiction I selected includes two of my own pieces and several others that became important to me in my studies in English. In both cases, it was the words which inspired the art. Someday I would like to attempt to reverse the order and create fiction based on visual images, but for the sake of continuity, I considered the stories first.Part of this project was a show of the art, held at the Daily Planet, in the Village, Sunday, April 17, through Thursday, April 21. There was a reception Monday, April 18, from 6 to 8. Enclosed are photographs of the show.
