In 1963, artist Josef Albers wrote, “In visual perception, a color is almost never seen as it really is – as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art.”
Let Me Find The Words (2023) is a series of 14 encaustic monotype prints which examine the emotional relationships of language and color, as building blocks of human expression. This series invites the viewer to reflect on meaning-making in the visual and language arts.
It is the arrangement of elements (color or words) that create deeper complex meanings for the artist and viewer.
Colors are the foundations of visual expression,
Words are the building blocks of written expression,
Each piece is titled and a definition of the title is provided for the viewer to consider in relation to the print. The title words are intentionally anachronistic, weirdly specific, or antiquated. Just as there are endless color possibilities, our words also hold infinite possibilities— we just need to find the words.
