Australian artist Rose Nolan has been painting words onto walls, pennants, banners, and cardboard for 20 years. Her work is playful and oscillates between confident and self-deprecating, as well as bold and humble. Some seem to refer to herself and her reflections on what is art and what it is to be an artist.

Being a fan of type and especially large, bold type on a wall, this work is right up my alley. The red, Constructivist style only adds to its appeal, though I have to admit that the pennants and their humorous statements are also pretty great.
