Kerchief Paintings at Super Crawl

Kerchief No 2 - Randell Neudorf - 2013 - web sizeI’m very excited to be exhibiting some new paintings during Super Crawl weekend at the Makers’ Market.

These new paintings consist of kerchiefs found at used stores, stretched and and collaged over wood panels. I can’t help wondering who might of worn this piece of fabric before I stumbled upon it? What happy and sad memories did this kerchief bear witness too? Was it worn as a fashion statement or was it just a utilitarian way to keep ones ears warm and hair in place.

It is this sense of history that makes painting on a used material much more dynamic than a stark white canvas. You can feel the memory just out of reach as it sparks the imagination of the viewer, drawing on our own memories and notions of nostalgia to create a story.
