Semantic fields

In semantic fields the artist explores the space between the image and the written word, dissecting it into its smallest components. Paper - the primary support of the written word - is punctured by the materiality of wool or sewing thread. The words “we”, “love”, “place” are deconstructed in a thicket of fibers, becoming an enigma difficult to decipher. This “woolly encoding” with its soft, porous surface, speaks to the osmotic properties of language and the permeable limits between ideas and their signifiers.
