Painted in 2011 on a Gallery Wrap Canvas that does not require framing for display.
"Crayola" is a deadpan illustration of a pair of wax drawing crayons seemingly adrift in a purplish grey cloud of checkerboard boxes. Very recognizable, a brand we all used as kids and now, many of us have children that use them as well. A very Ordinary Thing but, for some, a connection to fond memories and present pleasures. The painting - conceived while watching kids use them - is of another object that embodies the minimalist grandeur of Ordinary Things” "Crayola" was also included in my NYC Chelsea gallery show "Ordinary Things" and specifically spoken ofin a review of the show.
"Equally pale hues also serve as the geometric armatures for two horizontal compositions ...'Mongol' and 'Crayola'... the latter... a blue and an orange crayon depicted to appear to advance and hover, even while holding fast to the picture plane." -- Ed McCormack
