Around 2014, I started photographing commercial signage with a passion - mostly vintage neon and interesting old plastic signs - I became signgeek. (see Instagram - dpkessler) I had often used numbers and letters in series of paintings as compositional subjects and objects. But with no thought to any similarity to commercial signage. That changed with my new sign-shooting passion. In painting, I began working the elements of words and shapes into what might be called abstract signage. The Sign Square Series. All acrylic on canvas, 24x24" and most from 2017. The Signsquare paintings are $3,500. each.
