THE INTRODUCTION OF PLASTIC INTO THE COSMOS
50"X80"

This image suggests a mythical recollection of the beginnings of language, where sounds took shape and were molded into the distinguishing contours of meaning. These contemporary industrial product forms in neon sign colours, presented as some kind of pre-historic cave painting, create a double-sided conception of time. The plastic forms, which act both as the visual grammar and as current relics of a post-industrial social context, are seen here exploding into existence in a big-bang of linguistic creation. Naish defines his image making as a sensuous visual literature, which is actively pre-modern and post-modern, as it seeks to spontaneously delineate a contemporary mythology of language itself.
