The “Painted People” come into my studio as Barbies, Kens and G.I.Joes, and leave it as a clan of wanderers who travel the universe both virtually and in “reality.” In this case, they went to the Long Island City studio of my friend Susan Sechler Luss, and spent the afternoon exploring new terrain. Her paintings, collages and installations of found objects from the city streets turn an ordinary room into a place of light and mystery. I desaturated the photos to bring attention to the shadows and patterns, but left a little color to shine through like a rainbow out of silver clouds.
