These works deal with the relationship of writing and image, emphasizing the blurring of the differences between the two. My graffiti past and the foreign scripts seen during my travels in Asia reinforced my agreement with Paul Klee's statement that "writing and drawing are fundamentally the same." A page filled with unknown symbols, lacking phonetic representation, becomes silent and acts as an abstract image composed of many orderly elements. Thus the letters form a pattern, turning the text into a fabric that carries a hidden message.
