This series of small paintings is based on experiments with language systems. Using poems or prose she feels an intimate connection with, Garber uses phrases as a foundation for creating each piece. Distilling individual characters down to their basic geometric foundations, Garber builds imagery into a new system of coding. The addition, subtraction and accentuation of characters demands further interpretation of new associations and hidden meanings.
