Travels with Tsuku


A hand-painted montage utilizing vastly disparate elements pinned or taped in juxtaposition on a neutral surface, they include a postcard image of the illusive New Mexican Jackalope, a curious wildflower, and a graphic wineglass arrangement. Tsuku, a Hopi Indian kachina best known as a practical joker, pokes fun at an angry, turbaned native, prodding the image with an Alfred E. Neumanesque “smile-on-a-stick”…while a somewhat out of place piece of tinfoil provides balance to this odd assortment. Perhaps Tsuku holds the secret to the painting’s true meaning.
