Drugs By The Pool
In the mid-eighties I made a bunch of very large childish drawings. These were done on the type of backdrop paper used by fashion photographers. I have no idea if they still manufacture this paper, but it came in large rolls that were six feet tall, so I could roll it out on the studio floor as big as I wanted it. The studio floor created a lot of wonderful textures by chance. I used the childhood technique of crayola wax resist with black paint on top that you scratch through to draw and expose the colors. The use of a kindergarten technique in order to portray adult subject matter was amusing to me.
