Situatuated between writing and picture-making, the work of US artist Leslie Hirst subtly challenges the ways that we read marks as language. Following her first visit to Burano in 2005, Hirst was inspired to create compositions that fuse words with lace designs. Hirst's visual language is built from fragments, discarded shapes, and accidental forms excavated from her vast personal archive of antique handwritten letters and photographs of graffiti. These resources represent a vital link to lace-making since they depict a process of time through movement along a continuous line.http://insideart.eu/2015/05/07/ed-e-gia-http://www.undo.net/it/mostra/191272
