The Crosswords series encompasses two narratives; the linguist narrative (words evoke a particular image or group of images associated with it) and the narrative of color and form. The link between the two lead to the internal dialogue of the painting, in which these narratives sometimes meet, oppose, intersect or converge into one unit. I portray those disruptions by tearing, weathering and completely disregarding some pieces, thus establishing the visual aesthetic of the painting. Moreover, the Crosswords series offers an invitation to play; therefore, a new dialogue between viewer and artwork can be established.
