Narratives and MeditationsNew, Hand-written Drawings"The human body is the best picture of the human soul."- Ludwig WittgentsteinPart of my interest in creating portraits by writing a text rests in the idea that language aligns the mind with the body. It gives me a platform to consider the ways in which it permeates all human acitivity. How we use and navigate language structures determines how we perceive and experience reality. A new group of drawings, Narratives and Meditations, were made with these concepts in mind. Narratives, highlights language used in a social context, in terms of engaging and relating to others through words. Meditations emphasizes the ways that we individually absorb words to form an internal framework that fundamentally shapes our actions. The new work includes drawings related the mural I recently completed in Accra, Ghana.
