“Text : Message” (The Alchemy of text-based Art) is a group exhibition of artists, working in a variety of mediums and genres, who incorporate, infuse or solely utilize text in their art practice. Through their employment of language and letterform as concept and design, these artists cultivate an inherently transformative partnership of imagery and text, posing, among many other questions – “does art enhance the power of text or does the presence of text enhance the power of art or are they forever equals in this visual-conceptual dialog.“This unique art exhibition held at the Bleicher Gallery La Brea in Los Angeles will display a compelling array of contemporary text based works encompassing a wide variety of themes and concepts. The works on view will traverse
diverse styles and sensibilities, delivered with skill, intelligence, wit and innovation thru a myriad of themes ranging from public to personal and media including: illustration-pyrography (drawing with fire/heat), kinetic sculpture, collage, interactive installation, neon, l.e.d., video, sculpture, assemblage, painting, and photography.
