"Text Me" is a mesmerizing, fragmented surface that unveils a vision of parted female lips, poised to utter profound secrets, holding onto every word.

"Text Me" is a mesmerizing, fragmented surface that unveils a vision of parted female lips, poised to utter profound secrets, holding onto every word.

"TEXTME" is Angie Jones’s contribution to the "Art Collector Starter Kit" tenth annual group show at Corey Helford Gallery. This geometric oil painting, rendered on a wood panel, delves into the intricate tapestry of communication in the modern age. An extra bit of fun for this piece included AUGMENTED REALITY.

Once a mobile device is pointed at the QR Code and the painting, a portal opens to reveal an important text message sent at 2:21 am. A text appears: “I love you” on the left, but on the right, the reply is “Chill.” 💬 In a world of fragmented communication, “Text Me” is a profound commentary on our digital interactions.

In a world where words flow in a digital stream, where tone, cadence, intention, and even punctuation are often left to the imagination, "Text Me" stands as a profound commentary on our contemporary modes of interaction. The painting captures the pulse of our era, where the relentless ping of incoming messages eternally disrupts the rhythm of language. "Text Me" is more than a painting; it's an invitation to engage, collect, and embrace the evolving language of art in the digital age.
