Painting Letters, Writing Images
There are a thousand ways to paint a letter – once you begin looking at it as an image. Lucas Stolz’s work is about this idea; that the shapes of letters can express more than just words. In his experimental calligraphy practice, which involves building his own large-format writing tools, the artist distils the fast-paced choreography of each letter in a composition that highlights the personality of each sign. Aiming his brushes, garden-sprayers and rakes at the alphabet, he evokes beautifully imperfect Artwords that transport character, emotions, conviction.
