Where do we get our understanding of language and concepts? Years ago, when I worked as a technical writer, I received a company dictionary and was told that my writing could only use the words it contained. It made me wonder how abstract concepts could be conveyed without any using words at all. Now, as an artist, I am creating my own version of a visual dictionary, in which I define words and concepts with imagery rather than with other words. I particularly like to play with words that have multiple meanings. My artworks typically have political or social connotations, industrial connections, commentary on the art world or a purer reference to the physical world.
