Artist Statement:

“A Thousand Words” examines the interplay between the figurative & literal term consisting of several 8" X 5" collages incorporated with drawings of peoples’ faces executed on text-filled newsprint pages. When looking at a person’s facial expression, you can tell how they’re feeling at that particular moment whereas text, words, verbiage and recognizable text/identity marks explains it for you. Either way, we’re provided a mental picture from both, which illustrate the fact that a picture is worth “A Thousand Words” illustrated on a thousand words.
