A5 Black Canvas

Standard

I have a fascination in the visibility of text, and how readable the text can be.

This series of small A5 black canvases is the product of that fascination and experimentation. When face to face to them, they aren’t as visible as the images shown, rather their visibility and ability to be read depends on the height in which they are displayed and the shade of the lightening, as well as the angle in which the viewer in peering from. Its good to note that reading the text upon this canvas is near impossible at a distance, to be read and to be understood, the viewer would have to peer close to the pieces. The text has a sort of shiny reflection when gazed at from certain angles, which is sure to catch the viewers’ attention.

Those pieces were created by experimentation of minimal approach and construction, an example of this would be the small sized canvases were constructed with only two materials, paint and embossing powder, both of which is the same colour. Like Edward Rushca, the piece is only of colour and text, and still manages to portray its text and message in a bold sharp fashion.
