Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Wood.

I got to see David Byrne’s American Utopia show on Broadway in October 2019. That show was so profoundly wonderful for me at a moment that a really needed it. It was awesome to spend several days working on this painting, listening to the live record (available on iTunes and I’m sure elsewhere) and remembering all of the goodness that’s come into my life from the show.

Here’s the story: the primary colors for the show are grey & sunshiney yellow so I pulled those two colors in. But when you watch the show, it feels like there’s a lot more color, and it’s partly because you’ve got so many faces and feet (the performers in the show are barefoot), so the natural tones in this piece are about that awesome skin rainbow. The hot pink and blue line? That’s about the killer eyeshadow & kapow lipstick I remember Chris Giarmo, Tendayi Kuumba and Jacquelene Acevedo wearing. (Jacquelene kindly called this piece “Spot on!”)
