  • About

    By word works I mean visual/verbal or image/language/sign interactions which play between levels of message, medium and meaning; between text and context; between title and content; combining or manipulating or deleting elements to create a floating springboard to regions more lateral. These screenprints are not 'copies' of visual poems or word sculptures existing somewhere else: they are, each, originals.
