Hear the bones humming
And yet an other enhanced 'old' drawing from my hand. Or as I say 'it's a co-working with myself'. Started with the starfish-shape a few years ago and let it disappear in my archive of drawings. Never quiet happy with this old drawing. Always feeling it wasn't what I intended to make, not up to my (ever growing) standard. And the day before yesterday it came out of the archive and I added shapes, forms and a bird skull. So it could grow into something I want to show you. What you think of this one?

Minnie Evans (1892-1987), “Untitled”, crayon, ink, pencil and colored pencil on paper, 12 x 9”, 1962, Collection Art Institute of Chicago. – “Minnie Evans has scant explanation for any of her imagery or symbols. In fact, she has said ‘My work is just as strange to me as they are to anyone else.’ The only symbol she recognizes is what she calls her ‘money sign’, curious columns of continuous S’s on bird’s legs, sometimes crested. But the money signs she has seen – they were in the woods walking around ‘with greenback bills on the heads, and switching their tails like ducks.’” Excerpt from Nina Howell Starr’s essay in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s brochure that accompanied their 1975 solo show on the artist. #MinnieEvansMonday
