“Idioms are the perfect folk art. They belong to no one, are not authored by anyone and are used by all who use English. I collect them, edit them, arrange them and hand paint them in an italicized digital font of my design. The font is technical, empirical and precise while it carries a wide variety of mostly imprecise and casual subject matter. Basically, it is a low tech reflection of commonly expressed thoughts through high tech signage. With roots in Pop, Conceptual, Fluxus, advertising and journalism my artworks are short hand communication prompts.” -John Boone
