Judith Mayer - January 2017

Flaunt It

Words can be powerful, deceptive,
persuasive, informative, benign, or
many, many things. As a lettering
artist, how I choose to depict words
can heighten or contradict their
meaning.

In this piece, I chose the large scale,
bright colors, flowing script and
impermanent materials to add
a big personality to the phrase—
giving it an exuberance.

Using parade float materials gives it a
sense of impermanence. While in the
art world many artists use archival
materials to make their art last as
long as possible, this piece will fade
in the sun, and wilt like a flower as
time passes.
