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 Drip Catchers is a straightforward take on the many many drips in this particular painting. (Was the tempera watered down that day?) No matter, of course the collaged conversation had to be about them! The fun was to find the figures who seem to be reaching and catching them, maybe even getting tinged with their colors. Don’t quite know why they are doing the catching, but too many reasons would spoil the simple fun.
