Slammed In Love


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.

This work started as a crayon resist painting of rainbow rain and a pair of big red lips. (Was it around Valentine’s Day in the Kinderclassroom?)  And what better way to honor that delightful beginning than with a collaged va-va-voom female and a distracted young male wiping out because of her? On those lips! Oh, the delicious comedy and tragedy, cuz it’s still the same old story.
