A. Create a list of words that have no obvious visual reference: ANGUISH, TERROR, DREAD, FRIGHT, ABHORRENCE.

B. I chose the word FRIGHT, as seen below. Using points and lines to construct the word in an emphatic, expressive way.

Documenation: I chose the dripping bloody background to field the word “FRIGHT” and layered multiple “666” on top of that to create a textured feel, like ants crawling. The thorns in the font represent the lines and the individual letters represent the points.

Here are a few links to work I’ve created in the past:

  1. This is my online portfolio of oil paintings.
