These ink paintings, drawings, and montages are all part of my investigations into the visual form of language as a container for meaning. How do things mean differently when they look differently? How is there still “meaning” when language is not recognizable? How does the shape of a word affect the shape of its sound? How does the shape of a sound affect the meaning of what’s communicated? How is everything “not said” present in the white space around the said and what is the boundary between- what limits the said?
These questions came out of my personal experience and brought me to the formal considerations of the graphic arts, typography, and the calligraphic line— and the implications/complications of positive and negative space interacting within a frame to construct meaning.
