What’s in a word?

I’m currently working on a series of small canvases which is challenging for me as when painting I generally prefer the freedom afforded by working large. P1030428I have been thinking about different ways of incorporating meaning into my work by the inclusion of text and with this small series I am reducing the text down to a single word. I am interested in the idea that when a word is taken away from any other lexical context, it’s meaning becomes very personal to the viewer, defined by association or past experience for that person. I think I will be working through this idea for some time yet but for now this is what I’m working on. I hope you like them 🙂P1030427 P1030424
