MA Visual Arts: Book Arts 2013

Camberwell College of Arts


Each word stays on the edge of indeterminacy, sounding by itself, by its materiality, performing the ambivalence that is inherent in its drawn mark. Refusing the primary function of language, erasing its form and frustrating the attempts of “reading” the page. In my work, I diminish the visual information in order to expand the spectator’s orientation towards the site considered art, towards abstraction. I try, using traces of text, acts of writing, to create a new dimension, a primary level of communication, where the intuition, the imaginary, the memories or the associations of the viewer, are crucial to finish the meaning of each piece.
