Each of the eight artists represented here takes a unique approach to the idea of writing and communication, whether in terms of process, aesthetics, symbolic structure, or function. They examine words and language not simply for their literal meaning, but for their conceptual complexity -- as systems of patterns; as symbols of ideas; as visual designs; and as products of particular physical actions and gestures created with specialized tools and materials. Together, these 60+ paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures express how something so seemingly mundane as writing – something we see and do many times every day – is constructed from multiple intellectual processes.
