These text based paintings feature the most commonly used words in the english language. Like the original Illuminated Manuscripts, these paintings serve as both preservative and informative documents. Each word is mirrored and painted only with varnish as way of abstracting it, removing it from context, and encouraging full consideration of its meaning. This treatment of our language is an ongoing survey of our shifting values as well as an attempt to discern their larger implications.
