Art Description

Collage: Paint, Found Objects, Acrylic, Ink, Watercolor on Paper.

"Wide Eyed Girl" is based on a drawing I found on the street. The smiling girl with wide-eyed optimism is surrounded by and filled with text, which is fragmented, contradictory, and anxious. Culled from many sources, the words suggest adult subject matter such as power, confusion, perjury, end of the line, the beast, war, earthquakes, and private investigators. Money, pills, and smiling faces swirl around the girl and add a gritty undercurrent of narrative possibilities that stand in sharp contrast with the childlike quality of the wide-eyed girl.
