AZ You Like It (2020)

These paintings were produced using a word game. The Surrealist writing group Oulipo often used constraints as a method of making new work. Taking inspiration from them, I developed “AZ You Like It,” a constraint game that relies on a lexicon of subjects, settings, and actions meaningful to the user. By rolling dice, terms and symbols collide. From there, the user writes a narrative and translates the narrative visually.
