Asemic pattern in painting - how to read it?

In the Lithuanian art field, the asemic pattern is mainly used by artists painting abstractions. Such characters can be found in the paintings of the artist Konstantinas Žardalevičius, where illegible text appears between the large brushstrokes, as if written in written letters.

The artist uses different typefaces to refer to different ideas - the Gothic typeface, which is associated with medieval aesthetics, usually symbolises tradition and the past, while the texts of written letters are usually visualisations of ideas, thoughts and the future.

Thus, such texts in art should be read in the same way as they are written - abstractly, without trying to discern concrete meaning. The feeling that comes from seeing the writing also helps to understand the idea encoded by the artist.
