  The Way We Play Hide-and-Seek

(10 in. x 8 in. | mixed media on paper | 2015)

Aarne Anton/ American Primitive Gallery will be selling JJ’s work at Outsider Art Fair, Jan 21-24 in NYC.

In the words of the artist:

“1. You hide me.

“2. You forget where you’ve hidden me.

“3. I stay hidden until I hear you getting angry.

“4. I reveal myself, saying: “Hello, here I am.”

“5. You get even angrier and hide me again.

“6. You forget where you’ve hidden me.

“Over and over.

“I’m playing because I like you. I’m getting lots of drawings done here in the bushes. And I brought lunch.

“I’m not sure why you want to play. Do you sing? You have a lovely voice, even angry. I bet you’re a great singer.

“We can play a different game if you want. Or just talk.

“(Hint: you hide me in the same spot every time.)”
