love & hate

Im experimenting, I have seen a few other artists play with text in a similar way before so i can't say that its a particularly original idea on my part. But i am finding it curious, one of the first things i noticed while doing it is that I say the word in my mind every time i write it... hate is an awful mantra. The odd thing was that i did accidentally write love once and it happened when i said it in my mind while i was writing and out it popped (i dont mean the middle 'love'). The other curiosity is that in a way it is a portrait of obsession, in that it does require a certain resolve to cover a page in one word... just for the record I'M NOT CRAZY :P

 

Lastly i DON'T seek to surround love with hate in my real life :) will have to admit however that it does look a little bleak for love in this situation though, *pfft* next time.

 

This also reminds me of a Frankenstein moment "hate" standing in for the villagers obviously... though Frankenstein was hardly the visage of love.
