[From the artist] The central part of a triptych which when fully assembled recreates a surfboard of paintings (or a painting of a surfboard). This is the Middle One also because in my family we are three children, and there is a lot of talk about how birth order affects our personalities. I like that this one feels expansive and takes up nearly all of the natural parts of the canvas because often the middle child doesn’t feel like he/she/they are given as much attention as the youngest or responsibility of the oldest. Last, my sister, our middle sibling, is a California girl, and the earthy, warm clay colors of this painting remind me of most of her.
The Middle One is the central part of a triptych, which when fully assembled recreates a surfboard of paintings. The painting is named so because Kimmy's family talks often about how birth order affects personality. This work feels expansive and takes up nearly all of the natural part of the canvas, a sentiment responsive to the middle child’s feeling of a lack of delegated attention and responsibility.
