The Devil’s Alphabet, 2020 

Solution on black velvet

36 x 36 inches


A hybrid of a crossword puzzle and scrabble game, that when figured out, form a popular saying and its associated acronym. The words are comprised of 26 letters, with number values that add up to 26 as well, hence “The Devil’s Alphabet”.  This artwork references a time in our history where a great deal of fear is being generated via the widespread dissemination of misinformation, making it difficult  to discern fact from fiction.
