Homage To Writing

Writing and Painting are both vehicles for expressing ourselves and telling stories. Or not! Friederike Feldmann makes a point of writing in a certain way so we'll never understand it. His paintings become a stage where we see calligraphy as a player and not as an informant. Our only choice is to see the designs that lettering makes in these works: to appreciate the gestures only. Most, are simple exclamations of nothing and yet we're drawn to them because they seem to have meaning.
