China Blue

In this time of mean tweets, it is entertaining to rearrange the letters in four-letter words. It keeps the mind busy and adds some levity to our situation. The words are painted on small papier-mâche´ sculptures along with suitable images: rats, faces, guns, stars. The series is named “China Blue” in honor of blaming China for Covid and celebrating China for decorating porcelain with blue pigment as early as 1300.
