"Nude, leaning"
by sabine7 / November 30, 2006

Fiona Banner turns the traditional nude into a ‘wordscape’ by using words on paper, or wall, or metal, or canvas to describe the body by transcribing the vision. Language plays an important role in Banner’s works, as the artist is known for creating handwritten texts that describe films or sculpting larger than life punctuation marks. Our inability to use language effectively to express our thoughts and emotions is an important theme that runs through Banner’s work.
