dready ... Jerk

                        dready art 'jerk' - 40x24 - limited edition HD archival pigment print

years ago, in an art class, i was asked to paint a childhood memory and i painted, in oils and pastels, a floating pig in a background of roiling purple and green, dark and ominous ... but the pig was pink and fat ... it was called 'the pig of ancient memory' - and it was just that; literally one of my first memories ...

we had just moved to Kingston from the farm in yallahs, grants pen, which had just become 'Southhaven development' ... I was 2 and 1/2 ish; I don't remember grants pen ... but on what was probably the first day in kingston, a pig, in the bush, a big pig in a big dark bush, at the new house, startled me and that, that is my first memory as a human.

One of my kids has the art hanging on a wall ...

anyhow so the pig of ancient memory when I came to fit it into the dready pantheon kept its pinkness and its round-ness ...

but dready ness is about whimsy, eh, so the pig of ancient memory became 'jerk' - I love jerk pork!

eat mor chik'n ...

Jerk ...
