Item details

One of a Kind item
This work was inspired by Dr. Seuss. Thus the title "Drip Drop". I have always been fascinated by the curves and lines in the Dr. Seuss books. Although this work started with a layer of magazine images, the painting started to take a geometric turn. The lines and splatters loosen up the geometry as well as the mixture of paint. I hope this painting brings a sense of joy and happy wonder to whomever views it.

It is signed and titled on the back. It has been wired and is ready to hang.

acrylic, collage, graphite on wood - 24" X 24" x 1.5

Kedziors paintings stress color, design and texture through the use of traditional and non-traditional tools and printing techniques that include stencils, brushes, rollers, scrapers, masking and resist products.

Long before I became acquainted with the Dada and Pop visionaries, I was fascinated by the Jetsons, Disney’s animated films and Dr. Seuss’ illustrations. Saturday mornings were reserved for cartoon shows and Sunday mornings were not complete without the comic strips. My paintings reflected the biomorphic shapes contained in these venues.

Several years ago, I discovered that a genetic disorder, named Fragile X, lurked deep in my family history. In search of explanations, I was consumed with delving into medical books. The images I found there both fascinated and repelled me. At the same time, I saw a correlation to the organic and cartoony images that had become a part of my paintings. So I consciously made the medical illustrations a part of the images that I use to construct drawings that ultimately become paintings.

Although my paintings are developed with formal structure in mind and an emphasis on material and process, much of the imagery is gleaned from animated film and medical textbooks. So, as a critic once wrote, it is not an accident that some of my paintings resemble vivid, spongy and psychedelic landscapes that a space-age cartoon family might zoom through; or that others suggest Wassily Kandinsky meeting the Lava Lamp while watching a 1960’s educational film introducing youngsters to the wonders of the digestive system.

The finished paintings stress color, texture and space through the use of traditional and non-traditional tools and printing techniques that include stencils, brushes, rollers, scrapers, masking and resist products.
