he used to profess
The title for my solo art show, he used to profess, comes from a fascination with the history of print Advertising. The archives of old magazine advertisements in comparison to today’s advertisements demonstrates the demise of our language in the body of the Ads. Old advertisements used language in a way that we do not see in our mainstream media.
I really believe the comparison of old and new advertisements is a historiographical exploration of the way we communicate.
Do we even speak to one another anymore? I continue to question how language is used to convey or manipulate an idea.
The title for this show, I hope, conveys my desire for communicating my inner workings through a visual platform.
Thank you for being here.
