I recently did two small paintings (see below). Actually, both are older works that I didn’t like much, but I worked them over again recently and like them better. Both of them incorporate text, or at least a letter — or the absence of a letter…
Because I write as well as paint, sometimes I try to incorporate langue [oops; I meant to write “language,” but mistakenly used the French term I learned in linguistics class long ago, often used to refer to a community’s shared linguistic system], that is, language or letters into my paintings.
