My sustained investigation question is How does nature coexist with man-made elements in the world?
What I did to investigate this theme was by finding something I wanted to explore and try to nd the nature element out of it. I left my comfort zone by learning how to use different art materials Shown through my watercolor pieces, and I changed my processes on how I create my artwork. An example of this is instead of waiting for inspiration and doing nothing I would look at pictures of war or anything that had to do with art which helped me get started faster. My investigation evolved over time to include more elements of war after I realized that my father’s old photos from the war were incredibly interesting to me. Although I still continued to create pieces that juxtaposed organic, natural elements with rigid, man-made elements, I started to include more subjects that are connected to war in some way because of my dad.
