Only the Lonely
Turner Carroll Gallery
Kay Rosen’s artwork is largely text-based, employing “formalism, linguistics, and humour to reveal content that is hidden within both the structural nature of written language and the ways in which meaning can be generated through the manipulation of text.”
Rosen is interested in expressing language visually, and she focuses primarily on wordplay. Many of her works are representations of words in which certain letters have been juxtaposed or rendered in different colours or scales in order to reveal hidden messages or to draw attention to the relationship between language and meaning.
