Text/Subtext : A multi-studio show celebrating the written word

Modern artists have long used the written word as a mode of self-expression in their work opening a dialogue with their viewers and inviting that audience into a unique perspective and cerebral discussion.

Text/Subtext is an all-media show featured throughout the Torpedo Factory Arts Center (TFAC) October 18 – November 15, 2014. Participating member artists have been inspired to use text, either real, simulated or implicit in their selected works.

Featuring close to 80 TFAC member artists, Text/Subtext brings together diverse mediums and artists from across the region to celebrate the use of text, it’s meaning and the emotions we draw from its use.

Painters join printmakers, fiber artists, mixed media artists, photographers, jewelry makers, sculptors, enamelists, mosaic artists, glass artists and more for this celebration of the TFAC’s 40th Anniversary.

Photographer Julie Patrick, Associate Member since 2002, blurs the viewer’s understanding of text in her submission, Hurricane Neon, featuring a color palate run wet as the viewer sees through a water streaked window to the neon signs nearby during a heavy storm. “Text,” says the artist, “is implied, though what is created through it’s distortion speaks to me.”
