This paper discusses the body of artwork developed for my thesis series, Aesthetics of Violence, which comment on violence as a destructive force while simultaneously employing a violent process to create them. The artworks are visual responses to violence as it manifests itself in the lives of individuals and collectively within societies. Some discussion focuses on various artists and thinkers throughout history who also focused on this subject.
