Language is Means comprises ten 20" x 24" Kodacolour prints presented in three sections - The Language Chain, The Named Forest and Visible Signs - and includes an artist's statement. Published in 1991, the portfolio is an edition of ten.

Language is Means uses a distinctive collage technique that Sourkes' has developed over many years. Each image is a richly layered combination of text and illustration with photographs. In this series concerned with sacred associations of trees and alphabets, Sourkes extends her ongoing interest in processes of codification, "to expose a constellation of lost meanings" and "to address the degradation of the symbolic which we experience in contemporary culture" (artist's statement). Cheryl Sourkes lives in Toronto.
