Velvet throw pillow - Enigmatic Script 8
DETAILS, DIMENSIONS & CARE
2015, Black Chinese ink and tar calligraphic sketch.
The connection between the mystery, riddle and enigma has always enchanted me.
We deliver countless messages but don’t absorb any. We speak but say nothing. Consume the media but don’t communicate.
My need to create a personal enigmatic script for message encryption came to challenge people and demand their efforts.
The act of deciphering provides feelings of power and pleasure, and the person who solved the puzzle wins a key to a world full of fantasy and imagination, parallel to the one we know.
The calligraphic writing resembles a child experimenting with writing imaginary letters and mumbling their meaning.
Like a language, an ancient culture, with a past, a present and a future. Homogeneous, independent.
And at times, as abstracts created from the mass of the same enigmatic script itself.
