clear


15" x 22", watercolour, 1998

The reference for this came from a photo shoot I did with my friend, Kimberley Black (whom I've known since high school), a year or two beforehand. Yes, she can touch the tip of her nose with her tongue; she wanted to to prove it to me...then I snapped the shot.

I find the supercolourful nature and the lighter middle areas of each cell makes the matrix more reminiscent of stained glass here than in other versions –it also makes me think of candy: I can taste that background (and, no, I can't touch the tip of my nose with my tongue).

This painting was part of Operation: Waterstorm.
For background info on the title, see my post about evade.

Sketch, offering further proof.
