Todd Camplin has been abstracting text into detailed ink drawings for over a decade. Often taking months to complete individual works, this painstaking process involves the repetition of small words, letters and marks evocative of highly detailed maps and textiles. Camplin has been working with abstracted text since 2003, and focuses on several different approaches with the idea of abstracted text and containment that includes: box designs, filling the paper, and dropping the box out of the design. From afar they appear like multi-colored geometric abstractions yet upon closer inspection one can see compressed letters and phrases creating a completely new narrative.

David G. Smith is a Dallas-based visual artist, freelance code developer, and an adjunct undergraduate lecturer at Southern Methodist University, Meadows School of the Arts. Smith’s eclectic work experiments across media and involves emotional introspection of his experiences and influence on others in the world. He is on an eternal quest for themes that bind people, blend cultures, and celebrate humanity. His pieces often challenge stereotypes and transcend divisive, social, and political boundaries.
