Using my own Kindergarten paintings – yes I still have them! – I select and apply a section to a firm support and then the conversation begins…
I seek out gestural figures in periodicals and other paper ephemera, which are then reversed to see what serendipity they might bring. These images are aligned with the composition and colors of the painting to create or enhance a narrative.
The story for Antidote begins with various cotton candy colored clouds and one stormy one. Our figure sits comfortably under the green cloud which is releasing a cleansing white mist, a balm of peace and beauty. I’m pretty sure that’s the sun in the upper right and when the mist does its job, the clouds will roll away and our figure will rise and walk in the light.
