Here is artist Connie Goldman on her titles:
"My titles reflect my love of language. I like to learn about word derivations in particular. I even took a couple of classes in college that were concerned with Latin and Greek influences in the English language. If you peruse my journals there are some that consist mainly of lists of words, their definitions, and their derivations. For awhile all my titles were reflective of both the content and the reductive nature of my work. I used Latin bases such as "Concertare", "Metrum", "Loci", and "Reciprocus".
Since my work is almost always about the tension between stability and change, and since I find the meter and space in language and music to be fascinating I search the dictionary for words that are connected to these things. I've used "Brook", "Treble", "eddy", and "Current" for bodies of work."
