Magick, 2020




A small abstract painting exploring themes of outer-space, divination, and nostalgia while playing with unexpected color relationships. A black rainbow could be a black hole. It flies away with color steams shooting out. A crystal ball is a piece of the night sky. Fantastical and childlike themes are reflected along with the absence of a pretention towards illusionism. My fascination with rainbows lies with both their vibrant color and their ethereality. The motif recalls memories of childhood toys and clothing items. I think the odd color relationships remind me specifically of girls' toys and fashion in the 80's. The color combinations recall a childhood friends' favorite shirt, or a leotard I wore to gymnastics class. In this way they introduce questions about gender socialization, while also evoking nostalgia.
