A picture paints a 1,000 words (画中有话)

Nestled Ellipsis


In this design we drew our inspiration from the Chinese idiom话中有话, but we decided to put a twist to the idiom and changed the Chinese character from(word) to (painting). Another play of homonyms:) 

“A painting, a picture 
Sometimes conveys a message 
More clearly, precisely… 
It pins the emotions down 
And captures them in its frame 
They are embedded in the pigments, the strokes that brush across the canvas 
Look deeply and you will find   
Unlike words, once spoken 
The emotions they carry dilute over time 
And soon forgotten
A picture paints a thousand words…"
