the image in this painting is adapted from british pop artist Allen Jones' sculpture also titled "chair". i used gouache and graphite on wrinkled paper mounted to a pink wood panel, 8 " X 8".

here are some of Jones' sculptures from 1969, chair and table. i can relate to these for sure.

dear daddy

this summer i cleaned my studio for the 1st time in 3 years,
i found a lot of work that i have not seen in a while.
this is from 1993 when i was at UT Knoxville studying painting.
it is a dye transfer on silk that i made in dick deihnert's fabric class.
i hated that class, this was the only piece that i kept from all of the crap we sewed and made.
i also made a quilt of kurt cobain as a patron saint with a bloody head, funny he blew his brains out a year later. too bad i threw that one away.

one more thing

"one more thing to put in line,
one more thing to waste my time,
one more thing that i can't take,
one more thing and i'm gonna break"
