Say It With Words

Draw - Excerpt 

Michael Kenny described drawing as a "conceptual thing" which could be carried out in any medium. He regarded drawing as a "process of ordering" (of thought or of observation) concerned with selection and decision of what is significant and what can be dispensed with.  He argued that every kind of art activity is a form of drawing.

Drawing is expressed with words in Thierry Miquel's layered paintings.  Emotions, thoughts, observations are propagated onto the surface rendering a heady vocabulary to be digested. Miquel attempts to emote the words in his images, using his native language, subverting text to provide an insight into the human condition.
