Today the opposite of tomato is Cat Power's interpretation of 'Wild is the Wind'

graphite & putty eraser/30x20cm

Well, if Sigur Ros can entitle an album (), then why not head a blog post with an apostrophe?!

The reason an incidental kind of way, perhaps the most notable feature of the synechdochal fragments of brand identity visible amongst the folds of the found 'roadkill' subject/object matter of this latest drawing is the double incidence of an apostrophe, a rare if not possibly unique occurrence of a punctuation mark within the general context of this particular body of work.

More punctuation-as-art in the form of a work in neon, 'Bones', by Fiona Banner, an artist long-immersed in the use of language as her formal means, as may be explored on her website.
A site-specific exhibition context instance of 'Bones' may also be found here

(about two-thirds of the way down the page).


Cat Power 'Moon Pix'
Lamb 'What Sound'
& 'Between Darkness and Wonder'
Echo & the Bunnymen 'Crocodiles'
& 'Heaven Up Here'
