Art Description

Printmaking: Giclée on Wood.

Densely tracked and layered text (every word of every work published by Shakespeare) is presented in a monumental block in this unique print by Charlie Penrose. Language and text are common themes and tools in his practice, which in this piece invoke questions about our engagement with language, information, emotion and culture in an increasingly frantic and infinitely accessible knowledge space. Penrose provokes consideration of our use of and reliance on technology, and in doing so brings about thought on how we as humans interact, communicate and exchange information.

Keywords: communication, culture, dialogue, language, literature
