Edwin Schlossberg - Tidal Gestures | World: Nerve
With this book, artist Edwin Schlossberg juxtaposes two text-based graphic works in a single publication. ‘Word: Nerve’ gathers together words that have very extensive meanings, each creating a mood from the associations within each word and between the words of one particular letter, and by extension also between the words of each of the letters. Schlossberg selected each word based on its multiplicity of meanings and because it means something to him. In the series ‘Tidal Gestures’ (1990), he looks at words as they are based on sounds, seeing them as arrays of letters which can then be fragmented into pieces, creating seemingly endless forms, patterns, and compositions.
