Much of e.v. Meksin's work explores the power of letters. In her own words, she seeks to "resuscitate the hieroglyphic qualities of a written language."

The painter, who has a masters from the University of Chicago and is in the process of completing a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, tends to heavily work her surfaces to set them apart from the "flatness" of graphic design.

The tension in her art is deliberate and highlights "the space between popular and elite visual codes," or the dichotomy between commercial and academic influences on our culture.

For VerbSap readers and writers it boils down to this: a fresh vision of the words we manipulate and are manipulated by each day.
