About the Event

When images no longer seemed enough, artists combined words, text and literary references into their art to alter our experience of the visual arts. Since the early 20th century artists have included text and narratives in their art works. The use of language was vitally important in Cubist, Dada and other avant-garde art movements. Later in the century it was a key to Pop art which frequently incorporated advertising text and logos, and to Conceptual art in which language often became the artwork itself.

Whilst this is the predominant style of art Wire Tuazon works with, the exhibition The Shape of Water also reminds one of a beautiful novel.  Even more interesting is that all these paintings come neatly together, and relate to the next as if they were different chapters in a novel.  Through powerfully suggestive yet simple text, Wire Tuazon stimulates some vivid inner images and allows us to linger longer in our gaze within.
