Tegninger hvor kunstneren skaber sit eget alfabet af formularer baseret på piktogrammer. Værkerne er i et abstrakt, surrealistisk billedsprog. Piktogrammer er kombinationer af tegn, der opretter et nyt tegn, eller er abstraktioner af tegn. Den måde tegningerne opstår refererer også til kalligrafi. Elementer af japansk maleri, tegnefilm og ekspressionisme har alle indflydelse på disse tegninger.

Kunstner Sam Bornstein – tegning
Description of the works:
These drawings are from a group of works in which the artist creates his own alphabet of forms based on pictograms. The works are abstract, surreal, and use imagery that is almost recognizable, but does not quite describe a literal thing. These drawings work like pictograms in the way that pictograms are combinations of signs that create a new sign, or are abstractions of signs.
The way the drawings are created also refers to calligraphy. There is a graphic and expressive drive in the drawings that links writing to expressionist drawing and painting. Elements of Japanese painting, cartooning, and Expressionism are all influences in these drawings.
