ACTION!

Super Heros, garage sale series, 8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas, 2004 (Garage Sale Series). Another west-side Fort Worth garage sale. Mostly toys, 1980's stuff. Toys that had seen action such as powder burns, missing limbs. Some of the figures were reinvented as variations on a Frankenstein theme. Naratives must've played-out in the kid's imagination. Similar to what happens when a director makes a movie. Molding and shaping the actors to tell the story.

We ate a whole lot of garlic, still do.
