Cecil Touchon: in a broken tongue

24 May - 9 June 2013

Cecil Touchon is internationally renowned for abstractions that are based upon typography.   Using the techniques of collage, he reassembles letter fonts from billboards into pure abstractions that transform verbal language into a form of visual architecture. 


In this solo exhibition, Cecil Touchon continues to develop paintings based upon collage work.   Sometimes the edges of the letters are perceptible, but most often they are simply lyrical shapes.  By inverting the relationship between font and form, he demonstrates that visual abstraction can point to meanings that are deeper than mere words.
