About

Cuernavaca 2021 36" x 48" mixed media on panel Time tests a sign’s ability to inscribe itself into memory. Long before the appearance of writing, figurative and nonfigurative images were used in pictorial systems of communication. My work exists in a liminal zone, a shifting space where some things morph into other things. Fragments of signs and ciphers float like music notes, or pirouette into ambiguity. Often pictographic, my paintings and sculptures reference the work of American folk art and the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970s and ’80s. The visual vocabulary is also subtle with faint traces of text and decorous patterns; letters, words and graphics appear like cryptic messages or the faded recollections of memory. - John Randall Nelson
