Artist's statement Uplifting, inspirational words, free flowing geometric shapes, and vibrant color harmonies form Pepe's ArtInscribe archival images. They are a unique and inventive interplay between word and image. The words are interwoven into geometric shapes to create a unified and timeless expression.
