Children’s ‘Dora The Explorer’  blackboard wall decal

Maker: Unknown.     Circa: 2011.     Material: Plastic.   Object Type: Children’s toy/device.    Source: Lincraft.


This object is better than art because the design is all about colour – it implores the viewer to “look at the colours” – yet centres on a visually irresistible, perfect black void. The inherent contradiction has a generative effect that I am always trying to produce in my own art.
