These first 5 images of 11 figures are the newest small paintings completed 9/6/12

These small paintings are of clay, framed simply, (usually with wood from old lobster traps) they are 5" x 7" and are priced at $175. They tend to be inspired by people I know, sometimes just in passing and at times they are of people I see on a regular basis or my memories of that person, and of course some are self portraits. They are intended to be an impression and by no means an unflattering depiction. I often begin with the nose and go from there. The symbols inscribed around them tell a part of the narrative story. Many years ago I admired the primitive antique objects from around the world, and since I couldn't afford them I began to make my own versions. Whether you think of them as depictions of Kachinas, or Pre-Columbian figures they are my made up versions. When I was just beginning to exhibit, I made lots of these, often they were included in small works shows in NYC. Although I use the phrase "Critters" when referring to these relief paintings a better term would be "Personage" which something the artist Louise Bourgeoise used when commenting on her sculpture.
