This image (from Time) struck me as ripe for translation into an abstract color field painting, or a complex drawing in a picture book or graphic novel. It shows laundry hanging outside a student dormitory at a college in Wuhan, Hubei province, China. I am trying to imagine such a scene here in Bloomington, where we also have large, high-rise student dorms.
This reminds me of how much I have always liked the look of laundry hanging on a line: from the sheets my grandmothers used to put up in their backyards (which we would use as tents and cloth alleys for games); to the clothes out the back of brick row houses in Dublin, where I lived in the Coombe one year; to folding drying racks set up in Germany or Holland, in the garden. Spring is coming: time to think about initiating a system to hang clothes out to air!
