Ixnay Fauntleroy

(Click image to view detail)





Ixnay Fauntleroy is a painting with a split personality, attached visually by its horizontal band of text at the top. The left side is stoic, painted with familiar stencils and vertical geometrical shapes, except for that already mentioned textual band at the top. The right side is a deep cadmium red utilizing colorful carefree disks dancing with detail, alive with spontaneity and odd color choices. JMe created the painting while dealing with the effects of Covid. His symptoms were mild but persistent, the malady toying with his impatience to get well quick and the underlying truth that only rest, plenty of liquids, and healthy decisions would beat the virus. The two manifestations of the painting are the playful deceit on the right side, bright colors, animated with an element of biological hazard and the left side abstinent, sound strength of post and lintel composition, the bronze and silver, placid blue and peach hues holding up the title. A self-conscious title for all to decipher, i.e., “don’t play when you’re sick.”
