[464] Sing Me a Song

Completion Date: 24 September 2021
Medium: Paint & Indian ink on MDF
Dimensions: 3 X 7′

This series explores semiotics (universal symbols) and ideographic writing systems, and how they are invisibly interwoven into our daily lives. The series draws on both representational and abstract symbols, weaving a thread from the San rock paintings of my native South Africa all the way up to our smartphone emojis.

Painted on MDF, this piece has pre-drilled holes in it, so gets screwed directly into the wall.
