Language has been the focus of my recent art, language as text and image as language. Often, the images and texts come directly or slightly modified from highly recognizable cultural sources, each with an immediate connotation of meaning. The interest of my art is an investigation into the relationships between text as image and image as text. The process of this investigation involves breaking down the hierarchical relationships between text and image. Instead of privileging one over the other, I use them as equal, insistent conveyors of meaning.
