THE WRITTEN WORD
the written word empowers its audience to use their own visual scope of experience to flesh out the final meaning of a body of work. an exchange of imagination, a conversation between writer & reader. i have always been fascinated with storytelling & poetics. as long as i have drawn, i have also written, conjuring scenarios out of thin air or intricately describing a memory, a dream. i use automatic writing in my artistic practice as a means of sorting thoughts, as a way of expressing the ideas that i have yet to fully manifest out into a visual context & to present concept ideas into the world in a more direct way. i enjoy playing with conceptual presentation, molding language, working with the written word as an art form, writing in conjunction to the visual or musical.
