Piece of The Story
by Larry Janezich
Piece of The Story is a regular feature on Capitol Hill Corner which presents a single piece of art by a Capitol Hill artist along with the artist’s explanation of how the piece tells the story of her or his current body of work.
Today’s post features an acrylic on wood piece by DECOY. The piece is titled: “D is for Dondi,” and measures 69 X 45 inches.
“Each piece I’m creating relates to a person who has transformed by making the choice for a major life change. I bit my nails for 25 years, and I thought I would never be able to have funky or cool nails. One day I decided, I can do this. The confidence spread to other parts of my life.” The artist is creating a series of al-new paintings and gel transfer prints on wood as wel as t-shirts and hoodies.
“D is for Dondi” is currently on exhibit with DECOY’s other works at The Fridge (516 1/2 8th Street, SE, DC) through November 25. DECOY may be reached by emailing Alex Goldstein (firstname.lastname@example.org)
