Visual Art Show: WORDS IN ART
WORD is an On-Line Exhibition of paintings, prints, fabric works, photographs and sculpture, which brings together seventeen Artists who activate words WITH, IN, ON or AS a Visual experience. Each Artist, of course, has found their own way to integrate words as shape, pattern and compositional strength – giving their work a complex range of meaning and function.
Are these works a result of the predictive quality of The Painted Word written in 1974 by Tom Wolfe? I would support the idea that the relationship of WORDs and Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart has been around for centuries. Not only the Cubists and Dadaists, but the Limbourg Brothers in 14th C Holland and the Stele of Hammurabi, 1760 BCE from Susa in Mespotamia.
These 17 Artists are Contemporary to US – they are working Today to bring us Word/Image of concern to our Time and our Needs. — Jackie Lima
