Elucidare Suzanne Moore

Elucidare is a Greek word meaning “completely bright and clear; from lucere— to shine”. How does the interplay of writing and painting make the message of the text shine? When do letters dance, and word and image create the perfect balance in a 2D piece or on the pages of a book? The transformation of ideas into material form is the universal challenge to visual artists. The creation of illustrative lettering— abstract or legible— and complementary lettering of text is the unique question lettering artists face. Working with a text in one of these themes: the natural world, creativity / creative process, or philosophy / spirituality, we will begin by experimenting with various tools, familiar and unusual, in black on white papers. Responding to the content of a chosen text, painting will enhance the design, and textural writing will complete the pages for framed work or a future book. $140.00 for both days.
