Pictures Worth a Thousand Words: The Art Of Duncan Weller

Pictures devised to accompany words interact with those words in many ways. Besides just showing what is described, they can add to what is mentioned, pull back and show less, cuing our imagination suspensefully, rather than substituting for it. They can even contradict the text, making for funny results. Whatever role illustration plays, it enhances our understanding of the story. Duncan Weller explores all these strategies in his art. Illustration is a very flexible medium, and one that humans have relied on upon since before writing to explain the world.
