Special Feature: Beyond the Wall - A Visual Writing Exhibitt
“eauxBARK" ("Barthesian Sonnet")

This artwork of artist, curator and publisher John M. Bennett is also similar to Agnes Martin’s minimalist signifier artwork. Though the artist himself feels this artwork is “screaming,” it gives the viewer the opposite sense of a moment of peace, a restful pause of Being in the midst of the dark unknown. Though visual writing often portrays wildness, ultimate freedom and substantiveness in limitless emptiness, visual writing also often gives the sense of order, refuge and the most permanent of infrastructure—derived from language—imperiled amidst the meaninglessness and nothingness of humanity’s enigmatic and dubious existence.
