I Have Never Been Afraid of Slanted Eyes
26” x 32” Watercolor and collage on board
When I was in art school my dreams over flowed with amazing concepts and images. This collage was created from a dream I had where I was with several women friends. We were dressed elegantly as we wandered the grounds of a palatial villa. Suddenly, from the sky above several Asian men in a black Cadillac hovered over us staring down at us ominously and blinking Chinese characters down towards us! The ladies and I all looked up feeling annoyed was well as vaguely threatened. We sat on top of our own white Cadillac looking fiercely up and into the slanted eyes above. Putting our fingers to the corners of our own eyes we manually slanted them blinking construction cranes into the air to scoop up the bad intentions of these evil men. The spell was broken and I said to my friends, "Personally, I have never been afraid of slanted eyes myself.
