For this series, "If you feel down you could always sing a Song," 2005-2008, Tsavelidou has used salvaged sign-lettering as her medium, composing from the interplay of chance and her inert sense poetry. The resulting body of works read like absurd ransom notes; they look like art of the train tracks, hobo art. Yet in conception they can only be called painterly, for as in the history of painting, here there are scenes depicted, allegories, still lives, and portraits.
