Language Fails examines painting’s intrinsic qualities where written language falls short. Offering up different modes of production, Language Fails explores the way we see images in the advent of screen technology, and how painting fits into this world.
Isaac Willis uses painting as a method of research and enquiry directly into the relationship paint has to on-screen technologies. His paintings stand as part visualized research and part painterly paintings, reflecting this new age of image culture that is dominated by screen technology.
