Relationship: Art and Language

"Battiss’s woodcuts are part of the larger social text that he creates in and through his work. In addition, these prints question the origins of language, the very alphabet constituting such a language. Battiss indefatigably explored the creative potential of a visual language derived from rock art throughout his life: he encoded a language; devised his own language; and expanded his visual language, particularly in the various screen prints on exhibition. He plays with art and language: inscribed in one screen print are the words ‘Child playing with the leg of a broken statue’. His alphabet, his language has become, like the title of one of his screen prints, Flying Angels."

"and they all include some form of writing, usually in the background of the photo. ................. The magazine, Art and Language, was started in London by Terry Atkinson and Michael Baldwin at the time when Battiss met master printer Betambeau."
