While there is often a deeper meaning behind art created with words, text can often be mesmerizing purely for its repetition. I confess to loving the use of words for the hypnotic rhythm that they create. The effect can be like a blanket or textile of letters that slowly envelope as you gaze. Here are a few pieces that I find particularly appealing.
