Fighting my love of reading and words. I'm under the impression that words (in the great amount that I want to use them) have no place in my visual art work because they seem mad.
Then i look at Basquiat's work without the text, and wonder, what's the relation between:
profile, amputated limbs, clock, sole of a shoe
AND or VS:
Staff into Serp, Staff into Serpent Trick, Magic Leprosey, Magic
Water into Blood, Egyptians vs Moses, Size Nine, Moses, Moses, Moses,
Heel, el, He, Hee
If I used words to the extent that I wanted what sorts of shapes would I be able to incorporate to make my point.
