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.
Calling up the saturated colors and neon lights of a gambling casino strip, Lucky Hand is more dreamlike and illusory than it is an obvious story. We have some pretty clear suggestions, however. With cards and palm trees glowing, our reversed figure gazes upon the energetic primary colors and zip-zags of the painting’s environment, ready for the thrills to begin.
