Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project considers the creation of meaning within the context of Virginia Woolf’s two novels, Mrs. Dalloway and To The Lighthouse. The artist appears in many different forms, as a painter and as a mother figure in both of the novels, raising the question, does one encounter meaning to exist in the world, or does one make it? This I attempt to answer through a consideration of time, the process of mourning, and the specific function of mimesis within Woolf’s prose.
