The “L” Word
July 14, 2011
Watercolor on handmade paper
These images are inspired by poetry, signage, and form itself.
All as ways to talk about what is going on. They are improvised
and idiosyncratic. Words and letters are only part of the story.
Absence, presence, and the groupings that comprise the total
collection of images all inform how these letters work. Words
here are felt as much as read. Meaning is not fixed in the shapes
that may or may not be letters. Words travel from mind to mind;
the familiar is laminated to the unfamiliar, and language in
all its forms, is continually reinvented.
