“While thinking of ways to render language, this piece pioneered a new direction in my art making. Stepping away from an alphabetic reading of text and experimenting with a typographical form, I was inspired by the rhythmic pattern appearing as I worked. The letterform/form letter became an unreadable, yet, abstracted version of language.” — Gail Tarantino
