My friend Cory sent me a link to this artist’s website. As an artist who uses text, I think it is facinating how Archie Scott Gobber uses it in such a completely different – but very compelling way. His statement is short and sweet:

Using language, I say something and nothing at once.  There is power in words and suggestion as I ask the viewers to provide authorship through the filter of, their lives, beliefs and unique circumstances.  Through the various meanings usages and entendres of language, I am provided infinite source material.”
