Abstract

Fundamentally, creative endeavors are affected by the personal philosophy of artists which are greatly concerned with their perception and interpretation of life and death. These two concepts form a reality which consists of this dichotomy. As `unity' has been an underlying goal in the work of many artists, it challenges the polarity conveyed in this viewpoint causing contemplation and conversation around the framing of their own existence through their work.
