The Feral Joy Collection is a celebration of the jubilant return of hope and joy. These are paintings of lively forms and vibrant hues cavorting playfully in an invitation to indulge in optimism.
Each painting is a celebration, a mixture of colors and shapes that express happiness or resilience. I have chosen a palette reminiscent of a favorite childhood candy store stocked with candy buttons, sweet and sour hearts, candied almonds and licorice. The bold colors of jelly beans and the bright lollipop-greens and oranges express a lighthearted hopeful challenge to the dark grays and black. Likewise, jaunty and sometimes clumsy shapes twist and cha cha across the canvas, dancing against the outside world's avalanche of negativity.
