SIGNS

2015

a series of seven paintings, 65x50cm
ink on cardboard

In many of my works I use language as a medium. In this series of paintings language is both a medium and a subject. I wanted to look into the relationship between signs and the things to which they refer. I was interested in the nature of meaning: how meanings are created and how they function.
