"REVEAL - LEAVER", acrylic paint and ink on canvas, 40 x 50 cm.
This painting contains an anagram : "REVEAL" is wrote vertically with black bold geometric lines starting at the top (in the black cloudy zone). Those letters are cut in their middle.
"LEAVER" is wrote with white freestyle calligraphic letters. It is also possible to read it horizontally by tilting your head right.
The whole canvas is inspired by geometric, contemporary & calligraffiti movements, and represents a visual fight between concrete and abstract ideas created by our human mind ;-)
I'm also very interested in how people would interpret or sense this, as a visual or textual thing, and I hope it would fit to this great Mod Thread x Ello contest !
Thanks for reading me until this line !
"Nishe is a French visual artist whose textual and visual polysemic creations revolve around different concepts, processes and themes :
Text/image duality, interpretation, perception, deciphering, questioning, context and temporality.
Inspired by Visual and Concrete Poetry, her experimental paintings contains cryptic geometric words playing around those ideas of perception of words and images, often by deconstructing, blurring and mixing up traditional ways of reading a word (vertical/horizontal mirrored or tilted words, specular writing, palindromes, anagrams, …).
Each one is an invitation to think about the whole wide different (and often very personal) meanings a simple word can take for us."
