Illegible Writing

That's exactly what draws me to this piece by Thierry Alet. Letters are recognizable and it feels as if there are words and something's being said - but it's all "Greek" to me and so we're left with the decorative and conceptual aspects only. There are no pine trees or lighthouse here, but only written language for us to ponder.

The image is from Madinin-Art , not an English speaking site; and there lies the problem in understanding his oeuvre. The only English explanation of his work that I could find is at AICA-SC.org, with two beautiful images in blue from that exhibit. There's a small amount of info, but enough to get a glimpse into the concept and process.
