THE LANGUAGE OF MARKS

 Mixed Media Works by

TERESA J. WILBER

October 2 – 30, 2015

From her extensive calligraphic background, Teresa J. Wilber has expanded the classic letter forms to present an alternative format of calligraphic marks. She attempts to encourage the viewer to move away from the familiar forms of legible letters or words in the text, and, instead, refocus to the line quality, contrasts in space, texture and color of the marks. Her work includes artist-books as sculpture, to be enjoyed as a fully sensory experience, both visual and tactile, rather than feeling a need to discern meaning in the text.
