My current series began after seeing some free-range chickens enjoying themselves in the garden of a downtown home. No fences and free tomatoes. These chickens had more freedom than today's children. What was it like to be a girl when time was clocked by jump rope chants--and coming home before the street lights came on?
My paintings are populated by free-range children in a world where color is arbitrary, gravity is suspended and my thought processes are free-ranging.
I've created them for you--adult children.
