John Boone’s paintings combine the precision of contemporary pop art with post-modern English language idioms, producing unexpected juxtapositions. He paints colloquial expressions in dated fonts from the early days of word processing. His vintage palette is as bright as Roy Lichtenstein’s earlier work, but Boone’s composition spotlights the elements of written communication. The result is a rich and engaging commentary on the nature of language itself.
