Baroque Minimalism

Jennifer Talbot

My idea has evolved somewhat Im still going with the portal thing but instead of a painted images of the brushy vortex like mark I'm going to do a chalk drawing on the gallery floor much like the sort of work chalk artists do for tourists.The size will be small about the size of a stone pavement and it will be a replica of the chalk image dick van dyke draws for mary poppins. Do you remember the scene where they, mary poppins dick van dyke and the children jump into the picture and find themselves in a park like fantasy land with penguins merry go rounds. I would like to do this because it has a personal relevence for me and also extends the original idea of the portal beyond making a convincing illusion.
