Sumi ink and black watercolor calligraphy painting


O! Why do words matter? What quality of meaning does a single word have if it is always strung alongside others to import the statement? Authors know why, because they speak and write with understanding of what is unfolding or developing in the meaning of the words they have chosen.

Language’s eloquent precision became the inspiration for a composition of voices of authorship. They are presented as creators or instigators of the means of knowledge–they, who carry unbounded the language enterprise beyond cultures and across the millennia.

                          Quotations is made of sumi ink and black watercolor; it measures 39 x 55 inches, framed and is a calligraphy-painting. The work is a part of “Change Agents of American Culture,” a series of 27 original paintings I am composing about creating and inventing by the people who make up the American society.
