A key to Melzack’s Imagery
Looking at contemporary visual art often requires an understanding of the meaning of the images created in a composition. The knowledge of what my visual language represents, will I hope, create a deeper understanding and appreciation of the visual context and the story being told. Of course as with any work of art, your own experience with the images will evoke understandings based on your own lived experience and your interpretation may bring a broader context to the artwork. Explore, learn and enjoy!
