Special Feature: Beyond the Wall - A Visual Writing Exhibit
“Blue Text”

Cecil Touchon is a prolific artist living in Santa Fe New Mexico. His work is seen in many small press and online formats and also in one-man shows, university galleries and beautiful art books. Much of his fabulous work is similar to the piece above, with similar-style depictions of language. One thing that needs to be highlighted: in this work and much of Touchon’s visual writing, the linguistic imagery is cut up, not whole or plain, importantly implying that in general language use meaning does not derive solely from nor intend an unbroken, absolute unilateralism but, instead, conveys its message in a fragmentary, multiple, ambiguous, poetic, perhaps subjective modality.
