Writing on the wall

From early  times there was always a co-existence of text and image and both were often intrinsically intertwined in works of art .Examples are the early christian illuminated manuscripts in the west, while in our own country many manuscripts for instance the Bhagvad Puran where the painting or illustration was supplemented by text or sometimes even the other way around. 

In recent times artists have used text in their works either as independent imagery in itself or as an additional supplement to their images to reiterate and reinforce their conceptual arguments. Text is sometimes  introduced in a work as  a decorative motif or part of a composition .

This body of work explores how these different artists have endeavored to introduce and use text in their works to articulate and explore different facets of their reality and perception.
