Black Star


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.

Black Star is meant to be a little ambiguous. Is the star shape in a many-colored wheel the title subject? Or is it the high-heeled woman confidently striding out of it? Is the shape her cast shadow? Or is the shape doing a tripping move or even a sticky tugging back? And the answer isn’t really as important as the tensions set up by these questions.
