Today I show you my recent work from a series titled “In Principio Erat Verbum…”
Since the more ancient civilizations we communicated between us through graphic signs. Now, with the abstract forms of our alphabet, we share informations but also sometimes the sign itself become the center of interest. Is for this motive I want to extol typography as a poetic element and the book as a simbol of knowledge.

Avui us presento el meu darrer treball, una sèrie titulada “In Principio Erat Verbum…”
Des de les civilitzacions més antigues ens hem comunicat a través de signes gràfics. Ara, amb les formes abstractes del nostre alfabet, compartim informacions  però també, a vegades, el propi signe esdevé motiu d’interès. Per això vull enaltir la tipografia com a element poètic i el llibre com a símbol del coneixement.

    These are powerful pieces, embodying strength with a hint of malleability. Suggesting maybe hidden in the messages/ signs there is room for varying perspectives.

    Aquest llenguatge de plans em fa pensar en unes peces d’en Juli Gonzàlez on juga amb els plans, els doblecs, els talls.
    Molt suggerent, Montserrat!
    Enhorabona!!
