The text-based series "All-Encompassing" utilizes phrases and diagrams that attempt to describe the ineffable magnitude of the cosmos. Inscribed tablets serve as visual reference for these delicate graphite drawings on canvas. A recessed shadow makes carved inscription visible, but here the reflective metallic sheen of graphite illuminates the text on an opaque matte black ground. From a distance, the text appears as a series of indecipherable vertical marks, perhaps a mystical code. Upon closer inspection, the text is revealed as legible, while the illusive nature of language remains. The interplay of light and shadow visualize revelation and concealment.
