Overheard last June while walking past a woman on her cellphone with fading rainbow hair on 9th Avenue between 40th and 26th streets. Just as I passed I heard her say, “on her wrist.” My mind reasoned in many directions. Could we be talking about jewelry? A scar? Either way, it stuck.
And when it was time to paint, of course Bob the Drag Queen’s famous line and move came to mind, “purse first!” Which means, one should always enter the room purse first. In this painting, we enter, wrist first.
Passer des Fruits series: I have been collecting titles of meaning since last year. This series is a departure from my usual practice of waiting for the painting, like a baby or beloved pet, to tell me their name. Instead of intuiting shape, then finding a title, I went the other way and let the title’s intent begin the work.
