MIRTHA DERMISACHE

"What Mirtha Dermisache teaches us is that there are many possible shapes that asemic scripts can take. Many asemic writers write scripts that too often show too great a debt to Chinese calligraphy and too little imagination towards creating totally new forms. She shows us how to stretch asemia towards that point just before textlessness, the point where writing and drawing are one. She teaches us that the power of asemic works is deepened by their documental structure. These templates for meaning put meaningless text into meaningful context." Geof Huth
