The Linda Pace Collection represents a rich cornucopia of ideas containing process, structure, spirituality, expression, identity, materiality, expressionism, and language. The exhibition title, Hieroglyphs, focuses on the illegible and legible like inventions of a hieroglyph.  Works included are either constructed from markings or text, or both.

“Articulate structure—creative process remains on an unconscious inarticulate level where unconscious perceptions communicate themselves directly to the artist’s ‘automatically’ writing hand. So the task of the artist is to ‘disintegrate’ the articulate and rational surface perception and to call up the secondary processes in the public.” —Anton Ehrenzweig’s The Psycho-Analysis of Artistic Vision and Hearing: An Introduction to a Theory of Unconscious Perception.

“Art is a form of language, emotion, expression, and therefore communication. It is a cognitive act, says Dorn. As an artist, visionary, and collector, Linda Pace deeply connected with the idea of art as conduit for the voice.” Selecting works from the Linda Pace Collection, this exhibition explores the realms between abstraction and textual based work as a system for language.

Through investigating the irregularities between the gestural and text-based work, one can witness the tension between the verbal and the visual. This exhibition looks at the gravity of the artist’s voice through these selected forms. Dorn explains, “It is through this visual process we attempt to hear and or see a symbol for an emotion and thought—like a translation of language.”
