dc.description.abstractThe following thesis investigates a body of sculptures called “chimeras” for the myriad tensions between materiality, form, and content they embody. Using synthetic materials shared with post-minimalists such as Eva Hesse and Lynda Benglis, as well as Dallas-based artist Dan Lam, the chimeras cultivate an intimate dialogue between each other and challenge the definition of beauty. Following the tentacular thinking binding Donna Haraway’s Cthulucene and Ursula K LeGuin’s Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, the chimeras build a world inspired by speculative fiction, pop culture, and the natural world.
