This piece is from my current series, GHOSTS & BINOCULARS, which explores semiotics (universal symbols), ideographic writing systems, and global conventions that encode, represent and handle text. The series draws on both representational and abstract symbols, tracing a thread from the San rock paintings of my native South Africa all the way up to contemporary finance and emoji coding conventions.
Painted on MDF, this piece has pre-drilled holes in it, so gets screwed directly into the wall.
