Do you remember the Knock-Knock joke from your youth?
Knock, knock, whose there? Banana. Then, repeated over and over. Eventually the teller answers Orange. Orange you Glad I didn't say banana.
The whole time I worked on this piece, that joke popped in. So of course it is the Path to Glad and the subtle reminder of its source--Orange You.
This work involves screen printed and painted canvas, recycled cloth, decomposed screen printing, stenciling, machine stitching and quilting. It makes me glad.
