Emile Starkweather – Pursuit of Tranquility and Transcendence in Death
Artist: Emile Starkweather
Title: Pursuit of Tranquility and Transcendence in Death
Grade: 12th Grade
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Aram Muksian
I started with the question of: “What is death?” and since this question is practically impossible to answer, I looked at how can you obtain a certain state of mind and body when facing death. I felt that tranquility and transcendence are closely linked and are something that I wish to find when near death in the future. After I came up with this idea I just started to brainstorm. I started with the two contrasting colors: black and pink, and then thought of symbols of death and peace. I then continued to add on and form what is shown.
