Flamingo Mind Meld


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.

For Flamingo Mind Meld, the story revolves around the two figures facing each other, one very young and, in my mind at least, one much older, who are both touching a circular object, as perhaps one would a Ouija Board. It also might be spinning and a game they both enjoy. The flamingo and color fields composing the larger figure are slowly being transmitted via the painted zig-zags overhead to the younger one, much like generational osmosis.
