About

Ink on 19th Century Paper If painting, like any other language, can be considered an abstract system of signs, there must be a pictorial vocabulary and syntactical rules which communicate meaning, however subjectively.

The ink on paper drawings featured here play on the talismanic power of language and the written word.
