Description As always, I am concerned that the details can be seen since for me most all things are about the details. I love layers and contrast and questions asked. I always think our reality is formed from the interplay of these things and that is what I have tried to do with 'Joyride'. Not only is the visceral quality of things important but also their relationship to each other as well as the song. 'Joyride' for me is a song of questioning the world...others sales pitches...our response...our choicesthe essence of our life. Layers, collage and contrast serve as metaphors for the build-up of these experiences. So, okay, 'But what is really there, Lynda?' The core of the painting is this kind of shaky ferris wheel. Ummm, the insecure 'joyride' if you will. Insecure and fragile-made up of guns, the scrubbed cash and the oil wells (gasoline) as well as very a subtle Jesus and Buddha (with the question 'bobblehead?'). The statement 'Welcome to this joyride' appears as though seen from the inside out and the 'get in line' represents a choice to comply or not.As I have said many times, I really don't like to do this but I hope it helps in some way!
