Kaleidoscope - painting by Jack Coulthard

Kaleidoscope 2006-2010

You COULD have a kaleidoscope when the patterns are on the outside. The heroic figure with the Rolleiflex is a Battling Maiden, she is a Victory as is the Flying Girl above who demonstrates to the crowd of cripples below that, even with crutches, flying can be easy. You might wonder whether the black outlines mean that they are part of a drawing on the wall or if it is meant to be REAL. See it as a page in a colouring-in book. It is part of the REAL. It is real but different and that has been at the back of my mind all along.
