13, “BOXING 1,” Colored Pencil on Paper,30 X 30 ", 2015, Lauren Redniss, Thesis My overall goal with this series of drawings and paintings is to bring forward the theme of sports in the context of fine arts. This specific subject was chosen bescause of its significance in societies around the world. As a subject, it touches on issues of nationalism, spectacle, and my personal, the common human experience. This work is based mostly memory and skill.  By tying the sport directly to the action of creating the work, my pieces will rethink the identities and abilities of individual athletes, thus showing a more total and universal appreciation of the performance. The drawings will not try to be realistic at all, shifting our notion of sports imagery and questioning high definition, hence presenting sports in its raw nature: pure emotion. The strokes, colors and quality of the works will be used to call into question the viewer’s memory of specific moments, shedding light on ideas of collective recollection.
