Wrote Narratives



My Mother/Your Mother/What Color? #2 Ink, Thread and Acrylic on Paper, Vellum and Cloth, approximately 60" x 45"


I made these works with words for the "On the Line" project starting  with a text from a children's jump rope  chant about mothers fighting around the clothesline.  There are many versions, but this is one: My mother  and your mother were hanging out clothes, My mother punched your mother right in the nose, What color blood came out? ( the children recite the colors  blue, green, yellow, black, red, until the child jumping rope "misses.")
