1313 - DNA

"Curator’s Comments: This DNA inspired mixed media piece exhibits an essential strength in the simplicity of form, and repetition of shape and color.  The muted, low chroma palette and splattered dark matter conjures earth elements, and…"

MELITE

"Curator’s Comments: Melite came up randomly on the site today, and I was drawn in by its sense of serenity.  The reclining figure appears to be tucked away in a heavy adobe enclosure, but light is evenly cast on her doll-like form. …"

Black Jaguar

"Kristen, this is one of my favorite paintings that you did. There seems to be another faint abstract Panther perpendicular to the Black Panther's head and then another one in the upper right. Below that, there seems to be abstract paw prints.…"

Many thanks for your kind review of The Greedy.  I am immersed in the very slow process of understanding this complicated poem Commedia, looking at the distant past, how it relates to the alarming present and the personal.  In these my late years it would be amusing to eventually arrive at Paradiso.  The Greedy, as I recall, is commenting on materialism.

Dear Kristen

I liked your suggestion about the Red Queen/White Queen possibly being a split personality.  Perhaps on some level I am expressing that.  However the real reason is not as interesting..perhaps.  "Alice though the Looking Glass" has always been a favorite of mine, very quotable with interesting insights.  The most interesting, to me, is when she is on a hill and looks over the fields, woods and streams below.  She exclaims "why it is a huge game of chess being played over the whole world" (something like that").  I think "yes indeed".  So the painting is based on a chess board but I wanted to break it down and not make it so rigid.  I tried to figure out, more or less how the moves might work out, for example the knight has moved from his starting spot to forth spot from the left second row down.  The whole piece could be savagely taken apart if one is a chess player.  Different images play the queen, king etc, the pawns remain the same.  That is where the fun was for me.

Come to think of it I have not really answered your question. Of course in chess they are in opposition but perhaps they also can represent the split personality. 

It may need further work.

Many thanks for your kind review of White Queen/Red Queen.  It is very interesting to read a review of a work and consider ideas that I had not previously thought of.
