Since the early 1980s, the Swiss artist Thomas Huber has been producing a body of pictorial work that reveals a deep link with writing and language. Not so much because of the signs we see in his paintings, or the words or even whole expressions we can read there—there are indeed many examples of that. Rather it is because, along with his activity as a painter, Huber is also the author of texts which he is in the habit of delivering like a lecture or talk, standing before the images he composes. The artist thus reconnects with and explores the link—consubstantial with art history—between the painted figure and text.
