Word Works

Charles Wickler's avatar Charles Wickler

STATEMENT Our culture is increasingly based on visual imagery. A key component of this world is text. Text informs, stimulates, indoctrinates, sells and/or manipulates. My art uses text alone or with a variety of images in multiple media. Sometimes the text is the work of art. In other works, the text expands or complements a found image that creates a conceptual interplay. These works are not meant to be decorative. They are meant to confront the viewer to stop and react to an image in a new context.
