Art is subjective and subject to the analytical. It can be felt and experienced during the creative process as well as during the viewing process. I prefer to feel my way through the process and then analyze afterward--like most. It is difficult to analyze ones work. My teachers told me to leave that part to the people who do that best--curators and writers.
We know that symbols or pictures came before words and words can look like symbols, but our conscious mind likes to direct traffic and categorize the words into pictures and pictures in the words. Its a looping process kind of like Fibonacci's spiral. Language and art is a looping process for this artist. One feeds the other. As a trained visual communicator it was important to decipher the process--deconstruct in order to teach. In other words which came first--the picture or the word.

f-word n (sometimes capital; preceded by the) a euphemistic way of referring to the word fuck.
In our culture, F is the letter we relate to most regarding profanities and lewdness--case and point--"the f word"--WTF or LO FL or just FU.
I see the F made up of three simple twigs. F is for fun, future, face book and freedom. F is for facts and figures, familiarity, future, freedom, forgiveness and forever. F is for faith!
