Jeff Canham’s (*1974 in Seattle, lives in San Francisco) colourful and typographic compositions explore the various ways language may take, especially in idioms and dialects, how they are conveyed and interpreted. He combines text and graphic forms, at times merging them intrinsically when text itself becomes a graphic element as in his "ABC-series". Canham’s edition consists of 3 handpainted ABC blocks, each representing a single letter in the alphabet and allowing for endless possibilities of arrangement – as sculptural form, graphic composition or spelling game.
