Scans and photos of an old Secondary School English Literature textbook, yellowed mystery novels and boy’s western adventure books were all used to create these compositions. The lines layered, twisted, reversed and broken into words and letters. Fragments of illustrations become combined with text to create new context and new visual forms. The recombined context reveals and hides meaning that creates new forms of relevance.
Meaning and memory are linked
to a constructed reality.
We build it up in layers,
submerging lines of text,
letters into dots,
dots into pixels of meaning,
context hanging in the spaces between
the meaning constructed out of memories
age & reform .
When the letters are reduced to pixels has the meaning been lost, or has it continued – becoming a quantum level of intention, context, and coherence ?
Does the large distorted text create spaces, which become their own glyphs & sigils ?
